Abstract: This paper explores the relations between perceived urban freight delivery parking issues and commercial establishment characteristics, their associated distribution channels, delivery operation patterns and local land use patterns using a structural equations modeling framework. The main motivation is to test hypothesized relations between urban freight delivery parking issues and the aforementioned factors as a way to perform an indirect, but informative, freight infrastructure adequacy assessment. The hypothesized model structure makes it possible to examine, for example, if the distribution channel characteristics (e.g., the most frequently used delivery vehicle type) can be linked to a certain type of parking behavior/preference, due to operation requirements, which could result in perceived urban freight delivery parking issues.
