Author(s): The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI)


This study looks into the case cities – Delhi, Bengaluru and Surat, and sub-sectors in the urban freight sectors. The sub-sectors studied in this report are (i) delivery of posts and parcels by India Post in Bengaluru, (ii) organized service providers undertaking fleet level operations in Bengaluru, (iii) transport service providers for the textile industry in Surat, (iv) management and movement of solid waste in Surat, and (v) distribution of fruits and vegetables originating from the Azadpur and Okhla wholesale markets in Delhi.

TERI undertook a wider consultation process under the study to understand perspectives of key stakeholders across the urban freight sector. The objective of stakeholder consultation was to interact with manufacturers/associations, financiers, operators, and logistics players associated with urban freight sector. This gave an opportunity to understand their needs, requirements, issues, and the overall perception to recommend and promote the electrification of freight vehicles.
