International audience; Despite the failure of initial attempts and still uncertain economic profitability, UCCs are continuing to develop in France and elsewhere in Europe. This chapter shows that there is no single solution but rather a whole range of urban logistics spaces (ULSs) between which local authorities must decide on the basis of the objectives assigned to these facilities. It proposes the criteria to be taken into account and the institutional and regulatory measures that appear best adapted. The chapter classifies the different types of ULS and, for each of the six categories identified, specifies their scope of application, the elements regarding implementation and/or operating costs, and details the appropriate accompanying measures needed to favor their success. The six categories are the Urban Logistics Zone (ULZ), the Urban Distribution Center (UDC), the Vehicle Reception Point (VRP), the Goods Reception Point (GRP), the Urban Logistics Box (ULB) and the "mobile" Urban Logistics Space (mULS).
