The impact of new practices for supplying households in urban goods movements: method and first results. An application for Lyon, France

Abstract : Purpose: This paper describes an original methodology to understand the new purchasing practices of households (e-commerce, home deliveries, etc.) an its first results. Methods: the data available for measuring the magnitude of the changes due to new purchasing practices remain partial and poorly adapted for mobility analysis. We therefore explore the data available on e-commerce and related practices, in order to discuss their pertinence and eventually propose an original methodology. Results: a pilot survey was performed at the end of 2015 to test the methodology in order to perform a full scale survey planned for the end of 2016. This paper presents the general results of this pilot survey. Conclusions: placing this survey in perspective with mobility surveys performed in France should reveal elements of explanation for the changes occurring in urban logistics in Lyon and more generally in French cities and towns. Thanks to this methodology of survey and its first results, we can infere on the importance of new purchasing practices in urban freight movements and households mobility.
