City distribution plays a key role in supporting urban lifestyles, helping to serve and retain industrial and trading activities, and contributing to the competitiveness of regional industry. Despite these positive effects, it also generates negative (economic, environmental and social) impacts on cities worldwide. Relatively little attention has been paid to these issues by researchers and policymakers until recently. The analyses found in City Distribution and Urban Freight Transport aim to improve knowledge in this important area by recognizing and evaluating the problems, with a focus on urban freight transport systems.

Decision-making in the context of sustainable mobility and the transport sector often implies addressing complex problems featuring multiple interests and perspectives, conflicting objectives and different types of data and information. Typically, several levels of public policy are involved (local, province, regional, state and European levels) and several stakeholders (such as freight forwarders, investors, citizens, industry and so on) which have a vested interest in the ultimate decision, whether they encompass environmental, social, economic, technical or legal issues. If the decision-making process fails to take these interests into account, projects are often not implemented or lead to unacceptable delays or they can even be ignored by policy makers or attacked by the stakeholders. The chapter presents the Multi Actor and Multi Criteria Analysis (MAMCA) methodology, which has been developed to address such issues by explicitly considering and involving the stakeholders in the decision-process from the very beginning to the very end of the procedure.

Decision-Making for Sustainable Transport and Mobility

Multi Actor Multi Criteria Analysis

Edited by Cathy Macharis and Gino Baudry

Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis (MAMCA) developed by Professor Cathy Macharis enables decision-makers within the sectors of transport, mobility and logistics to account for conflicting stakeholder interests. This book draws on 15 years of research and application during which MAMCA has been deployed to support sustainable decisions within the transport and mobility sectors.
