Cities are increasingly congested. This is as much due to passenger transport as it is to the transport of goods (logistics). In response, cities – often in the absence of any national-level regulation – are trying to regulate themselves, often by putting requirements and constraints (conditionalities) on urban logistics operators.

The journal Competition and Regulation in Network Industries (Sage) is launching a call for papers for a special issue on “City Logistics”. This special issue of CRNI will focus on urban logistics operators and will examine how cities try to regulate city logistics within their jurisdiction in novel ways.
