Sustainable freight distribution

Of the 162 pages in the UK government’s Integrated Transport White Paper of 1998, only around six were specifically related to freight transport, raising concerns about the extent to which freight would be ‘integrated’ into its new policy framework. The main exposition of its policy on freight emerged the following year as a ‘daughter document’ entitled ‘Sustainable Distribution’. The UK government was one of the first to formulate strategy on sustainable distribution. Its 1999 document differed from previous UK government statements on freight transport in several respects:

  • attaching much greater importance to the environment
  • emphasising integration across modes, between freight transport and land use and across different policy areas
  • adopting a broader logistical / supply chain perspective on freight transport

This book chapter provides a critique of the UK government’s 1999 Sustainable Distribution strategy.
