Comparative Analysis of the Impacts of Delivery Restrictions in Large Cities

Posted in Transit / Public Transportation, Freight Transportation, Transportation Planning, Intelligent Transportation Systems

Overview

This project is intended to assess the observed impacts of the delivery restrictions that have been enacted and proposed in large cities such as New York (USA), Mumbai, Delhi, and Chennai (India), Bogotá and Barranquilla (Colombia), and Sao Paulo (Brazil). This comparative study is important because it would provide a real life view on this complex subject, and would confirm or reject the research conducted that suggests the possibility of negative unintended effects on traffic congestion and pollution.
