The paper provides insight into a comparison of the parking practices and problems of freight-vehicle drivers in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Delhi, India. The purpose of this study is to understand how parking problems are related to relevant characteristics of the study zones, e.g., geographical location, transport mode used for last-mile deliveries, and type of industry sectors attracting freight traffic. The study also examines the possible impacts of imbalance between parking demand and supply. The methodology involves the estimation of freight-parking demand using establishment-based surveys and cordon counts; parking practices and problems are captured through freight-vehicle drivers’ semi-structured interviews, and parking space supply is obtained from a parking inventory. Based on the analyses and findings from the study, the authors propose a set of recommendations to enhance parking management for freight vehicles in each area.

Nyckelord: Metropolitan area, Gothenburg metropolitan area, logistics sprawl, urban structure, freight planning, logistics facilities, warehouses
