With Special Emphasis on Grocery Distribution
Ph.D. study of the scope for sustainable transport in Denmark, and particularly of the role of the motor vehicle in this context. The distribution of groceries is used as case study of the introduction of the motor vehicle in Denmark, concluding that this has resulted in increases of the transport demand, energy consumption and emissions for distributing roughly the same quantities of groceries as in the 1950s. Next the scope for promoting sustainability by means of technical improvement of vehicles is assessed.
