This workshop engages participants to identify priority research needs in urban freight. Presenters from the United States and the  European Union will frame the discussion of urban freight challenges and potential solutions. Participants then will take part in facilitated breakout sessions to identify future research needs. The workshop will end with report-outs and a prioritization exercise, as well as a short brainstorming session on how to get high-priority projects into the research pipeline.
