Recent growth in ecommerce has quickly impacted the distribution of parcel deliveries in urban areas, with residential deliveries accounting for a rapidly growing share of freight movement. Through field observation and development of a simulation model, this study aims to investigate the characteristics of parcel delivery activity in a heavily residential area of Manhattan, New York City, and to investigate the expected traffic impacts of double parking parcel delivery vehicles.
