This is the second of a three-volume series of books describing the new opportunities and challenges of city logistics, based on papers presented at the Tenth International Conference on City Logistics, 14–16 June 2017, Phuket, Thailand.

City logistics aims to balance economic growth, better environmental practices and safer communities associated with urban freight transport. To achieve these goals, a number of smart solutions using ICT (Information and Communication Technology), ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) and the IoT (Internet of Things) are presented and discussed in this book. Recent advances in modeling, planning and evaluating city logistics initiatives are also outlined.

Collaboration with public authorities, private sectors and residents is a key issue and organizational and operational points are discussed based on experience in practice. A number of case studies on city logistics in many cities throughout the world are presented and analyses on their successes and problems are described.

This book will encourage researchers, as well as practitioners who are interested in city logistics, to investigate complicated problems relating to urban freight transport in order to find improved solutions for more sustainable and liveable cities.
