Last Mile Freight Toolkit: A guide to planning the urban freight task
The Freight and Servicing Last Mile Toolkit developed by Transport for NSW aims to support practitioners to incorporate freight and servicing activities into urban planning frameworks for both urban and regional areas, where land use density is higher, competition for roads and kerb space is greater and place outcomes are a priority. It promotes practitioners to give greater consideration to freight and servicing demands for new developments as well as better management of existing built areas.
The Freight and Servicing Last Mile Toolkit includes:
Guiding principles – consider placemaking outcomes and broader benefits of efficient freight and servicing movement;
Measurement and forecasting tools – quantify future freight and servicing tasks accurately;
Design and management solutions – facilitate efficient freight and servicing practices; and
Future approaches – draw on best practices from urban environments around the world.
