How to evaluate and plan the freight-passengers first-last mile
Giuseppe Pungillo and
Transport Policy, 2021, vol. 113, issue C, 56-66
“First-last mile” (FLM) is an informal composed-word, widely used to indicate the first and the last leg of each transport movement. In this paper, it is defined as a complex system characterized by three interconnected macro factors that determine the success of a transport planning system. This is a very challenging part of the transport system from a planning perspective because of the critical issues that make it not much reliable and cost-effective.
