Summary

This book provides an educational tool for engineering and management schools for an efficient implementation of urban logistics. It contains the knowledge gathered by the scientific community over the last 15 years. Since this is a relatively recent thematic for the scientific community and in view of the impressive number of experiments conducted by private parties, this book provides a comprehensive review of urban logistics. It encompasses the different fields developed by urban logistics, presents the possible actions to be implemented to improve the system, explores the methods implemented, while using concrete examples, and finally presents the latest advances in the field.
