About this book

This book addresses the challenges of planning sustainable freight transport systems (road and air) in a time when the industry faces increasing pressure from environmental limits, climate change, carbon emission targets, bottlenecks in oil supply, infrastructure shortages and urban congestion.  The author examines sustainable freight transport over the last 45 years on three continents, and includes developments on transport economics, logistics and transport geography as well as environmental economics.  Readers will gain valuable insight on a number of practices and methodologies that will assist in making their systems more sustainable with fewer negative environmental effects at both the local and global level.

Dr. David Bonilla is a research professor at the Institute of Economic Research, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico and a visiting senior researcher at the Transport Studies Unit, University of Oxford.

Reviews

“This book is a welcome addition to the relatively sparse literature on the economic geography of air cargo and road freight trends. By assembling a wealth of statistical data and consulting a range of stakeholders, Bonilla has analysed these trends from trade, locational and environmental perspectives and considered where they may lead. This is makes the book particularly topical in world in which protectionism, geopolitics and climate change are increasingly shaping public policy and business strategies on freight transport. While it focuses on goods movements in Europe and China, its conclusions also have wider relevance at a global level.” (Alan McKinnon, Professor of logistics, Khune Logistics University)
