CityLab.com

Professor of Global Studies and Geography Jean-Paul Rodrigue was interviewed by CityLab.com about e-commerce and the problem of traffic congestion in busy urban areas. As more people and businesses conduct business online and expect expedited shipping, UPS, FedEx and other delivery trucks are taking up space on busy streets and roadways. Dr. Rodrigue, the article says, recently completed his own delivery survey of a 300-unit apartment building in northern New Jersey. Over the course of 2016, more than 23,000 packages were delivered, which breaks down to about 65 packages per day.
