This book addresses the challenges of planning sustainable freight transport systems (road and air) in a time when the industry
faces increasing pressure from environmental limits, climate change, carbon emission targets, bottlenecks in oil supply, infrastructure
shortages and urban congestion. The author examines sustainable freight transport over the last 45 years on three continents,
and includes developments on transport economics, logistics and transport geography as well as environmental economics. Readers
will gain valuable insight on a number of practices and methodologies that will assist in making their systems more sustainable
with fewer negative environmental effects at both the local and global level.
