This paper describes and analysed the process of DMF application in 3 city regions in Europe: City of Como, Italy; City of Berlin, Germany; and City of Newcastle upon-Tyne, UK. The three cities have been engaging with city stakeholders to address urban freight issues via a series of stakeholder workshops. Three separate DMF matrices have been completed which have demonstrated the different preferences of city stakeholders in engaging with clean urban freight solutions. The City of Como is targeting vehicle access regime and an urban consolidation centre as their strategic outcome while the City of Berlin is embracing political support, market conditioning and technology solutions (vehicle and IT solutions) as their strategies. In the city of Newcastle upon-Tyne a coherent strategy to deliver a sustainable University campus utilises a delivery and servicing plan, new procurement approaches, and the potential use of an urban consolidation centre.
