Globalization has had profound impacts on supply chains, freight transportation systems and the spatial distribution of economic activities. All layers of the supply chains—global/international, national/ regional, and metropolitan/urban—are affected by globalization in one way or the other. This has dramatically impacted geographic distribution of economic activities and land use. Former manufacturing sites have been re-purposed, and cities have replaced port and warehouse areas into residential, dining, and entertainment establishments. This trend has also been fueled by a re-appreciation of cites as desirable places to live, spurring new economies based on services and consumer- oriented activities. This in turn, is adding pressure on local deliveries, which add to the travel distances, freight vehicle-miles traveled, and congestion. In this session we will discuss how emergent trends could impact freight and land-use, and best practices of freight and land-use planning.
