Held October 24-26 at UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center

Program

Proceedings

Goods movement – both within cities and between cities – is increasing faster than any other type of travel.  The effects of this growth are significant for both urban and rural areas, especially along major highways and rail lines, and near air- and sea-ports.  In the fall of 2004, the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium on the Transportation – Land Use – Air Quality Connection will address Goods Movement.  While the movement of goods has received increasing attention from both policy makers and analysts in recent years, the topic has rarely been addressed with an explicit focus on the connections to land use and the environment.  In addition, the clear links between goods movement and the economy, the environment, and questions of equity make this an important and timely topic for many.

The impacts of goods movement on traffic congestion and, likewise, the effects of congestion on the movement of goods are critical issues in many areas.  Freight logistics are evolving in the face of both technological, economic, and policy changes.  The effects of these changes on land uses – such as the recent growth of inland warehousing and trans-shipment centers – are in need of more attention from policymakers and researchers.

Air quality planning focuses increasingly on goods movement, especially with regard to fine particulate matter.  Potentially significant changes in both propulsion technologies and, especially, emissions regulations are on the near-term horizon.  Related to this are environmental justice issues, which pose important questions for both the residents of neighborhoods adjacent to highways, rail lines, and freight-handling facilities, and for the organizations that use and manage such facilities.  And finally, all of these issues are inextricably linked to labor–management relations in the goods movement industry.

These issues will be addressed in a series of presentations and discussion among goods movement analysts and decision makers in both the public and private sectors.  The 2 ½ day invitation-only retreat will feature presentations by many of the top researchers in the field, and will include panels and other forums for dialogue among public officials, private industry leaders, and audience members.  This mix of researchers and practitioners having diverse interests and viewpoints is the signature of the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium, which is now in its 14th year.
