Retail location and freight flow generation: proposition of a method estimating upstream and downstream movements generated by city center stores and peripheral shopping centers

Abstract : This paper aims, via an analysis of the literature, to propose a first modelling and assessment framework to estimate the impact of retail location and characteristics on the environment. The contribution at this point remains conceptual and methodological, but the proposed framework is able to be applied if suitable assessment tools are available. The framework combines a freight trip flow and a shopping trip flow models for vehicle and transport distance estimation, and a life cycle analysis method to convert those vehicles and distances into environmental impacts, taking into account both direct and indirect impacts. First, an overview on retailing location and the motivation of the proposed framework is presented. Second, the general methodology is described. Third, the different modelling schemes are proposed, relating them to what is proposed currently in literature. Finally, future developments are presented.
