This chapter explores the extent to which urban freight policies and measures/interventions can be determined via the city logistics typologies and objective studies developed from past work, comprehensively reviewing almost all European city logistics cases from the 1970s to the current day. It reviews urban freight typologies based on land use, type of transport policies/measures, urban freight markets and traffic flows, city logistics problem/objectives, and other attributes, integrating cases with typologies and validating the analysis through a panel of city logistics experts. The chapter develops a novel, multi‐dimensional, poly‐parametric typology for city logistics, which has multiple uses in analyzing and selecting interventions. It describes the way the theoretical typologies, and more importantly the parameters within them, were used to populate the database of city logistics cases. The inventory and further details behind the typology are available for shared use within the city logistics community.
