Reviews

'...Perhaps his greatest contribution...a pioneering work...provides exhaustive information on freight related issues, planning techniques and strategies...numerous examples of actual practice...full of practical suggestions...an international book...should be available in every library in the world.' Professor Arun Chatterjee, University of Tennessee, USA 'This book belongs in every professional and institution library...should be essential reading for students of transportation planning, practising professionals, politicians and bureaucrats...a timely and refreshing book that represents a landmark in the continuing development of the transportation and traffic engineering professions.' Road and Transport Research '...deserves to be widely read by government road regulators and builders, not to mention a few transport ministers and their advisors.' Melbourne Herald-Sun '...a timely and a welcome addition to the transportation or planning bookshelf and was long overdue...extremely informative and interesting. I commend the author and can thoroughly recommend this book.' Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design 'Urban Goods Movement seems destined to become one of the information pillars of transport policy, and will educate students, technocrats and practitioners alike for several years to come.' Policy 'In my opinion, this is the best book so far published on urban freight. It is well structured, widely referenced and very readable. The book is certain to become one of the standard urban transport texts and will be of particular interest to geographers and planners.' Journal of Transport Geography 'This informative and scholarly book has much to recommend it. Certainly it has widespread appeal, drawing its illustrations and examples from many different countries.' The Chartered Institute of Transport Proceedings
