Potential Impact of Emergent Technologies on Freight Related Land-Uses in Urban Areas

May 9, 2019 9:00 AM

1.5 CM / LU Pending

Emergent technologies such as connected and autonomous trucks are impacting and will impact even more supply chains and the spatial distribution of economic activities. All layers of supply chains--from global to urban--are affected by new technologies, influencing the geographic distribution of economic activities and land use, and posing new challenges for transportation and city planning. In this session land use and transportation planners will discuss how emergent technologies are impacting land-use and the best ways to foster freight-efficient land-uses.
