City logistics, an important function integrated in city daily operations, aims to support the city’s economic and social growth while eliminates environmental impacts to the minimum level. Nowadays, urbanization is still furthering its step fast and cities are becoming bigger in size and population. The limited city logistics capacities and already congested transportation systems are restraining cities from sustainable development. A number of problems in the current city logistics are needed to be identified and addressed. The aim of this paper is to apply a data-driven methodology with the help of STATA and ArcGIS to analyse urban freight logistics system of Oslo, in alignment with “Det Grønne Skiftet” – The Green Shift Strategy, and offer a basic understanding of city logistics to the policy makers of Oslo. The policy makers can thus refer to our research result and improve the city logistics in line with the overall urban paling strategies. Due to data’s and time’s constraints, we narrow down our research into the factors that are mostly relevant to commercial urban freight logistics, such as the population and the grocery stores. Further data can be input into analysis when different evaluations are expected to achieve.
