Facilitation of Goods Movement in the New York City Area

by Stuart F. Millendorf, Freight Services Improvement, Conference, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Goods Transportation in Urban Areas


One of the most significant developments on the urban goods movement (VGM) scene in the New York/New Jersey bi-state region is the broadening recognition that the resolution of UGM problems requires willing cooperation between the private and public sectors of the freight transportation industry. A contributing factor has been the Freight Services Improvement Conference (the FSIC), which has demonstrated an ability to marshal the most effective resources from both sectors in addressing a wide variety of issues impacting on the region's trucking, marine, rail and air freight modes and its shipping and consumer interests. In this paper the author has presented some specific examples which may be adaptable to other urban areas.
