Integrative Freight Demand Management in the New York City Metropolitan Area

This USDOT funded project was a joint effort between Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Rutgers University, ALK Technologies, and the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management - NYU Wagner. The intention was to promote the shifting of deliveries from the regular hours to the off-hours (7PM to 6AM) by providing incentives to businesses to receive deliveries during the off-hours. The project team enjoyed the support of the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), local unions, and various business improvement districts.

The project team completed the pilot test in January 2010 and the analysis of the results in September 2010. PDFs of the Executive Summary and Final Report are now available.
