9780080439037: City Logistics (0)

This book presents fundamental concepts and general approaches to City Logistics. City Logistics is the process of totally optimising urban logistics activities by considering the social, environmental, economic, financial and energy impacts of urban freight movement. City Logistics initiatives are required to solve urban freight transport problems including high levels of traffic congestion, negative environmental impacts, high energy consumption and a shortage of labour. The focus of this work is on modelling City Logistics. Modelling is of crucial importance, since estimates of the impacts generated by City Logistics measures are required for evaluating them. It highlights the formulation of mathematical models of vehicle routing and scheduling with Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), optimal terminal locations and impact estimation by City Logistics measures. Heuristics techniques such as genetic algorithms, simulated annealing and tabu search are also given to identify approximate optimal solution of these combinatorial optimisation problems. ITS provides powerful tools for efficiently managing and operating vehicle fleets. Sophisticated logistics systems can now be developed by integrating Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in conjunction with application software. In this context, the book presents a theoretical and practical treatment of modelling City Logistics based on ITS.

About the Author:

Eiichi Taniguchi is Professor of Transport and Logistics in the Department of Urban Management, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University, Japan. His research centers on city logistics and urban freight transport modeling, focusing on stochastic and dynamic vehicle routing and scheduling with time windows, and multi-agent simulation considering behavior of stakeholders who are involved in urban freight transport. His recent research covers health and security issues, including humanitarian logistics after catastrophic disasters and home health care problems in an aging society. He has published more than 200 academic papers and nine books. He was awarded the best paper award by the Japan Society of Civil Engineers in 2000 and by the Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Studies in 1999 and 2011. As the president of Institute for City Logistics since 1999 he has organized the First through Eighth International Conferences on City Logistics in various venues in the world. He has been actively involved in collaborative research in international organizations including the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Conference on Transport Research Society, the Transportation Research Board, and the World Road Association.

Russell G. Thompson has more than 15 years of experience in city logistics research. He has been involved in a number of local and international studies relating to urban freight, including the Best Urban Freight Solutions (BESTUFS) project and the OECD report on urban distribution. Professor Thompson is a founding Director and the Vice President of the Institute for City Logistics based in Kyoto and a Team Leader of the recently established VOLVO Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Urban Freight Systems.

Review:

Markus Hesse
an early contribution to an undoubtedly relevant field of research.
Journal of Transport Geography
David Stewart-David
...theoretical, but it does benefit from empirical evidence from city traffic policies. It ought to be within the capablities of a numerate undergraduate specialising in logistics....give a lucid explanation of simulation and meta-heuristic techniques, and makes helpful reference to the issue of modelling across perceptions....interesting concluding chapter on future perspectives....this book will be useful.
