Institute of Transportation Studies, Working Paper Series from Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis

Abstract: This study aims to provide an overview of the different technologies of electrification, automation and shared mobility (3Rs) in freight transportation for the long-haul and last mile. The study provides a view of their penetration status and explores the potential, challenges, and unintended consequences of their arrival in the transportation system. An overview is also provided of the required changes and the driving forces needed to foster the 3Rs in freight. The results can help inform the development of the next phases and future steps, plans, and policies or initiatives needed for the next generation of the freight transportation system, especially in urban areas. This research brief summarizes those findings.
