The methodology proposed takes into consideration the behaviour of several stakeholders and their interactions using the multi-agent system approach. Then the urban freight distribution initiatives can be prioritised. The case study of Rundle Mall Precinct, Adelaide is introduced and will be the test case for the model developed.
