Abstract

The growth of manufacturing industry and freight transport demand is expected to raise energy consumption and CO2 emissions due to the increase of truck use as a trip end mode of interregional freight transport in hub cities of highways or the economic corridors. This study aims 1) to investigate the distribution of urban freight transport by interview survey and estimate CO2 emissions in Khon Kaen and 2) to find the better solution to reduce CO2 emissions considering land use, traffic control and dissemination of energy technology. Since Khon Kaen is located on the crossing point of East West Corridor and Central Corridor in Greater Mekong Subregion, it is expected to increase urban freight transport demand as the hub city. The results showed that TOD including aggregation of offices and plants around BRT stations and the dissemination of Electric Vehicle as freight use could reduce vehicle kilometers travelled and CO2 emissions.
