Abstract

Recently, the evolution of emerging information and communication technologies (e-ICTs) has been opening the road for developing and implementing new integrated and dynamic city logistics solutions, and subsequently for identifying new frontiers of intelligent transport systems (ITS) supporting the development of smart cities.
