EcoLogistics Baseline Report

The purpose of this report is to review existing urban freight movement characteristics across nine cities in Argentina, Colombia and India, provide an account of current greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from urban freight and to evolve strategies to minimize its impact. The report is designed to be used as a baseline from which to measure emissions reductions, and will be used as part of the Low Carbon Action Plan for Urban Freight (LCAP-UF), which details the actions that are planned in order to curtail energy consumption and emissions from urban freight.

Moving goods within cities is a complex task with mounting challenges. Unlike passenger transport, transportation professionals and policy-makers often lack comprehensive understanding, robust data and common terminologies, all of which have major implications for the management of urban freight transport systems as well as the larger freight network.

There is a need for a greater understanding about freight transport system at urban level, its relationship with land uses, and its negative environmental externalities. The purpose of this report is to review existing urban freight movement characteristics across the nine project cities in Argentina, Colombia and India, provide an account of baseline greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (2019) from urban freight and identify possible interventions to minimize its negative impacts. The emissions have been established using EcoLogistics Self-monitoring Tool. Developed as part of the EcoLogistics project, this is a useful tool for local governments to estimate, evaluate and track their urban freight emissions over time.

The analysis presented in this report is a result of extensive desktop research, multi-stakeholder discussions, close consultation with public officials, surveys and interviews with logistics companies and freight transport operators in each city. City-specific data was used where available, and verified by stakeholders to ensure its robustness and credibility. Drawing on the analysis, policy recommendations and interventions are also presented in this report and will be used as part of the Low Carbon Action Plan for Urban Freight (LCAP-UF) in the project cities.
