The purpose of this paper is account for the state of the art of sustainability initiatives in urban logistics by reviewing the current literature in the field. Previous research studies (76 articles) have been classified along three dimensions: the sustainability challenges addressed the theme and topic under study and the methods employed. The paper identifies the various aspects that have been explored in depth but also some areas that warrant more extensive studies. It is suggested that more studies should address the social aspects of sustainability, analyse the situation for specific business actors and that more collaborative methods should be introduced.
