2ndBESTUFS Round Table

"Modelling approaches on Urban Goods Transport"



Thematic focus:

The aims of the second roundtable are to present the urban freight transport model descriptions and prototypi-cal experiment results collected and compared in order to identify best practice approaches and to influence ongoing developments. Included are tools for diagnosis, simulation models and tools for the assessment of ef-fects of urban goods movements on sustainable developments of a city (economic, environmental, social as-pects). Three main approaches are generally carried out:

Thanks to the active participation of about 12 European experts, we have today the possibility to discuss around a typology of modelling both methodological and geopolitical point of view. The second roundtable work consists of 3 parts: the first one is dedicated to the state of the work, including the results of the first task about data collection. The second one is devoted to the national contribution with five topics and a large discussion about modelling approaches. The third is devoted to planer's experiences of modelling.
