Publication: Chapter in book/Conference proceedingContribution to conference proceedings


Growing urbanization and rising urban freight volumes contribute to increasing congestion, noise and pollution which negatively impact a city's population. City hubs are one means of dealing with this problem. Because of the general shortage of urban space a major challenge is finding an appropriate location for such a hub. This paper provides a decision support tool based on the analytic hierarchy process for the hub location selection problem. By involving various stakeholder groups, the approach insures a comprehensive view. The application of the model is tested for the location selection of a midi-hub in the City of Vienna.
