Book review

Although society has become increasingly dependent on the timely operation of logistics systems, we still face many problems regarding efficiency, the environment, energy consumption, and safety in urban transport and logistics—under normal cases and in disasters. As such, understanding how to address these challenges has become essential for creating better urban planning and policy implementation.

Presenting the best practices of leading experts from around the world, Urban Transportation and Logistics: Health, Safety, and Security Concerns provides cutting-edge concepts and a vision for urban transport and logistics relating to human security. Its comprehensive coverage supplies the foundation for examining transport and logistics systems in urban areas from the viewpoint of safety and security considerations on human life. Topics covered include:




  • Hazardous material transport

  • Healthy transport

  • Road safety

  • Network design for freight transport and supply chain

  • Transport and logistics in Asian cities

  • Vehicle routing and scheduling with uncertainty

  • Urban transport and logistics in natural disasters

  • Future perspectives on urban freight transport


The book addresses Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Intelligent Transport System (ITS) applications within urban logistics. It considers supply chains, road safety in hazardous material transport, and logistics and transport design in mixed traffic areas. It also introduces the notion of the megalopolis and the need for improved planning relative to human usage, freight transportation, and city logistic planning.

This book provides numerous examples and case studies of real-world scenarios from around the world, making it useful for both practitioners and researchers involved in urban transport and logistics planning.
