Volume 6: Sustainable Logistics
Editors: Cathy Macharis, Sandra Melo, Johan Woxenius and Tom van Lier

Logistics is essential to support the economic development of any region. However, logistics operations also create significant nuisances for society, like congestion, emissions, noise, etc. This book deals with ways to come to more sustainable logistics. See the Table of Contents

Policy-makers, geographers, transit planners and students will find Sustainable Aviation Futures an excellent collection of debates highlighting how the complex and fragmented issues surrounding aviation sustainability have evolved, with hints as to where the industry may be headed next. - Lisa Choi, University of Oxford.

Volume 3: Sustainable Transport for Chinese Cities
Editors: Roger L. Mackett, Anthony D. May, Masanobu Kii, Haixiao Pan
Publication date: January 2013

Overall, this book is a valuable addition to the sustainable urban transport literature in two ways. First, for readers who want to learn more about China, this book provides a comprehensive update on what has been implemented and is currently being implemented in this country, as several authors are actually policy executers in city governments. Second, this book is an excellent collection of practices and lessons from some major non-English speaking countries, such as Japan, Germany, and France. Therefore, the book reflects the geography of the diffusion and implementation of sustainable transport concepts.- James Wang, University of Hong Kong. Reviewed in Journal of Transport Geography, Volume 36, April 2014

"Sustainable Transport for Chinese Cities" provides an invaluable reference to recent research and scholarship on the environmental context for transport in the world's largest urban nation. This volume makes a significant contribution to understanding the environmental challenges posed by this urbanization, as well as the opportunities such urbanization may afford.- Professor Jonathan L. Gifford , George Mason University School of Public Policy, U.S.A

The sustainability of Chinese cities must rank as one of the great contemporary challenges for transport policy makers. This book is a must read for those interested in solving the problems of motorization and urban development. All readers will be interested in the outcomes from this campaign. - John Black, University of New South Wales, Australia

I consider that this volume makes a valuable contribution to the debate about the future of sustainable urban transport, not only in China itself, but also with relevance to many other countries. - Professor Peter White, University of Westminster, UK

Motorization in developing economies such as those in BRICs, is one of the most serious threats for the global environment. "Sustainable Transport for Chinese Cities" presents best practices of policy and the instruments to alleviate the problem as well as to improve the mobility based on the research activities of World Conference on Transport Research Society, a truly international academic society on Transport.- Professor Kazuaki MIYAMOTO, Tokyo City University

The authors of this book address one of the most important future challenges human mankind will face. The exponential growth of population, urbanisation and (motorised) transport demand and the resource consumption and environmental burdens that must be reversed to create a sustainable world. This book is therefore a must-read for decision makers to support them to understand the challenges they have to solve.- Professor Guenter Emberger, Institute of Transportation, Austria

This book is an excellent collection of practices and lessons from some major non-English speaking countries, such as Japan, Germany, and France. Therefore, the book reflects the geography of the diffusion and implementation of sustainable transport concepts.- James Wang, University of Hong Kong. Reviewed in Journal of Transport Geography
