This chapter contributes to the understanding of practical issues relating to stakeholder evaluation of urban freight policies. The empirical section of the chapter presents evidence from stakeholder focus groups set in a specific and complex political and urban environment: the Limited Traffic Zone (LTZ) in Rome. In surveying the problems surrounding goods movements in Rome’s LTZ, we focus on three main questions:
- Which are the principal problems associated with freight transport, according to the main stakeholders?
- What is the view of the current regulatory context and how does this modulate the problem perceptions?
- Which are the main policy proposals that stakeholders promote to tackle these problems?
