Regulatory policies aim at reducing the negative effects of urban freight transportation, especially those related to traffic, emissions and noise. Nonetheless, stakeholders in city logistics often have divergent objectives, which lead to difficulties upon defining the best possible choices regarding regulation. This paper presents a multi-agent and discrete-event based simulation of urban deliveries that aims at evaluating the impacts of regulatory policies. Restrictions regarding vehicle…

Delivering Goods in Urban Areas: How to Deal with Urban Policy Restrictions and the Environment
It is shown that the cost impact of time windows is the largest for retailers who combine many deliveries in one vehicle round-trip, and the cost increase due to vehicle restrictions is thelargest for retailers whoseround-trip lengths are restricted by vehicle capacity.
An Agent-Based Simulation Framework to Evaluate Urban Logistics Schemes
An agent-based simulation framework is developed that assesses the interaction between five types of autonomous agents involved in urban logistics schemes and explicitly including company-driven initiatives and adopting a supply chain-wide perspective.
Simulation Applied to Urban Logistics: A State of the Art

Assessing the effects of trucking regulation in Korea
Studies are meant to lead to action, where shown to be desirable, by governments. The overall government objective which we take as axiomatic is that a change in regulations should be adopted if it
Large-Scale Agent-Based Combined Traffic Simulation of Private Cars and Commercial Vehicles
An agent-based approach was used to reconstruct commercial activity chains and simulate them, along with private vehicles, for a large-scale scenario in Gauteng, South Africa, showing that the reconstructed activity chains are both spatially and temporally accurate, especially in areas of high activity density.
Large truck restrictions directly affect freight carrier operations. To estimate truck travel demands, it is necessary to look into the changes of freight carrier operations after the imposition of
