Exploring the Application of Urban Form Profiles in Freight Trip Generation
Conference poster, 2018

This research aims to incorporate urban form characteristics in freight trip generation (FTG) models, and thus enable more interaction between practitioners through integration of their instruments and policies. From this perspective, the research addresses two questions:
To what extent does the urban form profile of a location influence the freight trip generation patterns of local establishments?
How much do the urban form profiles relate to the location preference of different types of establishment?
