Logistics is a key activity in urban areas, due to its key role in the economic growth of a city, but also to its externalities (e.g., traffic congestion, pollution, noise) affecting the quality of life of citizens.
This Special Issue aims to focus on the new business and operational models emerging in planning and managing city logistics while considering the environmental, social and economic aspects related to the sustainability of the logistic system.
Covered topics include (but are not limited to) green routing, green logistics, city logistics applications, smart mobility, environment 4.0, business models in urban logistics, synchromodal transportation, multimodal transportation.
