This book features urban and transportation planning strategic guidelines for land use, land occupation, and environmental conservation for Dry Ports in Brazil. It brings forth examples from and comparisons with European and North American models to highlight how Dry Ports can minimize environmental impacts from their storage, distribution, and transportation activities especially when located nearby or within cities territory. However, various planning and operational aspects of Dry Ports do not necessarily take into account regulatory laws and policies for Brazilian urban freight. The negative impacts of heavy trucks and trains on urban spaces transporting freight from Dry Ports to Brazilian cities, lack specific local legislation to combat deleterious impacts. As freight transportation facilities, Dry Ports are often subject to special rules and zoning laws. Such special handling aims to avoid negative environmental impacts and interference with the urban transportation systems. This book, thus, aims to analyze policies and legislation in place while also offering suggestions for the better usage, environmentally and logistically, for proper Dry Port utilization.
