Spatial Dynamics of Warehousing and Distribution
P.I. Name & Address
We are conducting research on the spatial dynamics of warehousing and distribution in the Los Angeles region. We are exploring various data sources. There is no reliable data source that provides employment or establishment data with detailed industry sector and at small spatial scale. We are testing reliability of alternative data sources to determine trade-offs between spatial scale, industry sector detail, and accuracy. The research question is whether warehouse and distribution decentralization leads to more truck VMT in a region where such activity has a substantial import/export component.
