Road freight transport performs a vital service function within urban areas, yet it is also perceived as a cause of many problems such as energy use, pollution, noise, damage to roads and congestion. This paper begins by considering the importance of urban road freight transport and its scale and impact in urban areas in Britain. A case study of road freight transport in London is included. The case study has been undertaken to help illustrate the composition of road freight transport in Britain's capital city, to indicate the importance of freight traffic (in comparison with other motorised road traffic) and to attempt to estimate its effects. This includes quantification of total vehicle activity, energy use and emissions by freight vehicles in London. Within the case study a number of possible freight transport strategies are modelled in order to examine the extent to which they could potentially reduce the negative impacts of London's road freight transport.
