Abstract: The paper presents results from a study of urban freight measures in the city of Oslo. More specifically, it presents methods and results from an ex ante study of seven potential city logistics measures. The study is based on a survey among 67 representatives from three stakeholder groups. Furthermore, a generic ex post evaluation framework is presented, and an example of how the framework has been applied to evaluate a demonstration of electric distribution vehicles. The study gives explicit and systematic documentation of multiple stakeholder perceptions related to several measures in urban freight. Only a few studies have done so previously. The measure assessed most positively is environmentally friendly vehicles. The ex post evaluation of demonstrated electric vehicles suggests that electric vans can serve parts of the express shipment market very well with their existing range. Removing uncertainties related to their performance and financial viability is an important task for further take-up of these vehicles. The study provides a basis for designing viable and effective measures in order to achieve more environmentally-friendly and effective freight distribution in the city center of Oslo.
