“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”

from a Mexican Poster

(M.R. Reuter, 2003)

sustainable cities
Sustainable Cities

Freight systems affect the economic prosperity & liveability of cities

Prosperity and liveability are related

Both are vital for sustainability

urban freight problems
Urban Freight Problems
  • Noise
  • Emissions (Particulates & GHG)
  • Congestion
  • Crashes
  • Vibration
  • Energy consumption
  • Visual intrusion

ITS can reduce these problems by reducing the amount of truck travel in cities…

intelligence
Intelligence
  • Analysing

- sensing & analysing environment

- detecting changes, perceiving problems

  • Making decisions

- acting rationally, choosing options to solve

problems

  • Learning

- using experience to make improvements:

identifying new problems & decision making

intelligent freight systems
Intelligent Freight Systems

Those that are:

Clever

- successful in copy with new situations & solving problems

Alert

- fast in perceiving & understanding problems & finding answers to challenges

its key elements
ITS key elements
  • Intelligence
    • gaining knowledge (data collection & information processing)
  • Integration
    • connecting & co-ordinating key elements
urban freight
Urban Freight

Is a derived demand

Primary drivers are from processes associated with management of inventory such as manufacturing & retailing

City Logistics

City Logistics is an integrated approach for urban goods distribution based on the systems approach. It promotes innovative schemes that reduce the total cost (including economic, social and environmental) of goods movement within cities

OECD, (2003)Delivering the Goods,

Challenges for the 21st Century, Paris.

slide12
City Logistics is the process for totally optimising the logistics and transport activities by private companies with the support of advanced information systems in urban areas considering the traffic environment, its congestion, safety and energy savings within the framework of a market economy

Taniguchi, Thompson & Yamada, 2001

city logistics schemes
City Logistics Schemes

Public Logistics Terminals

Co-operative Freight Systems

Access Regulations

Advanced Vehicle Routing & Scheduling Systems (CVRSS)

Intelligent Transport Systems are crucial for these schemes to be successfully implemented…

Aim: to promote City Logistics

esp. modelling, evaluation & data collection

Activities

  • International Conferences

6th Int. Conf. June 2008 in Puerto Vallarta

  • Workshops
  • Newsletters
  • Collaborative Research

ITS to support Urban Consolidation Centres & Co-operative Freight Systems

Dynamic & integrated

Order Processing

Vehicle Routing & Scheduling

Load Planning

Transhipment

Track & Trace

Eg. Centre for Eco-Friendly Distribution, Lucca, Italy

(Di Bugno et al, 5th Int. City Logistics Conference, Crete, 2007)

product swaps
Product Swaps

Distribute 500kg between each site

Vehicle capacity = 2000kg

Each site ≥ 1 vehicle

Transhipment possible at each site

Based on distributing electrical goods between retail shops in Melbourne

Concept could be applied to multiple carriers, horizontal collaboration (Fischer et al, 1995)

its for product swaps
ITS for Product Swaps
  • Determining nodes for swaps
  • Coordinating arrivals and departures of vehicles
  • Load planning
  • Determining nodes that vehicles need to visit

Empty Running

co opetition
Co-opetition

Sharing vehicles, warehouses & distribution centres

Increase load factors & decrease dead running

All schemes require ITS for successful implementation

collaborative distribution
Collaborative Distribution
  • Shared storage location(s)
  • Networks restructured using advanced vehicle routing & scheduling systems
  • Distribution to outlets by areas & priority
  • Substantial savings in transport costs (20-30%)
  • Significant reduction in environmental & social costs

Next GenerationUrban Freight Infrastructure

Intelligent Freight Systems using ITS

  • Vehicle routing & scheduling systems
  • Auction systems (portals)
  • Information Systems (eg. travel time & reliability)
  • Track &Trace Systems
  • Monitoring (eg. AVL)

Necessary to support Public Logistics Terminals & Intermodal Freight Terminals

other initiatives
Other Initiatives
  • In-vehicle systems
  • Advanced vehicle routing & scheduling
  • e-Commerce
  • Auction and matching systems
  • Compliance monitoring systems
