ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the lecture delivered by Stephen Anderson to the Freight Transport Special Interest Group at the office of the Institute of Logistics and Transport in London in 2001. He said that in order to achieve sustainable solutions that is vital to understand that urban logistics is a complex activity and that urban premises act as focal points for a whole host of core and sundry goods deliveries and collections. The factors affecting these patterns include the time goods are delivered to premises, whether delivery takes place on or off-street, goods vehicle dwell time, and time of home delivery dispatches. Some of the most common problems affecting the efficiency of these actions are transport-related, road design, traffic flow, exceptional traffic incidents, and customer service/receiver-related problems.
