International audience; While public-private partnerships remain a valuable instrument to manage new infrastructures, asset specificity and high risk in innovative contexts call for public management. The chapter outlines the importance of public partnerships as a prerequisite to public-private partnerships in developing resilient urban logistics. After reviewing literature related to public partnerships and public-private partnerships, the authors focus their attention on the elaboration of the innovative “La Chapelle” International intermodal urban terminal in Paris. This chapter relies on former research in the fields of public, public-private partnerships, and urban freight logistics. Therefore, from a theoretical point of view, it illustrates the application and consistency of these contributions in the urban freight logistics. From a managerial point of view, the chapter provides insight into cooperation regarding integrated urban freight logistics management in large cities.
