The paper explores how governing bodies and planning authorities in Norway take urban freight transport into consideration in three different cities. Based on empirical studies of actors and processes relevant to city planning, the paper highlights challenges related to integrating urban freight transport considerations in city planning. The paper demonstrates how different planning approaches shape the integration of urban freight transport in city planning. The paper shows that early integration of freight considerations and stakeholder engagement in city planning is vital for developing more effective and sustainable transport and freight systems in urban environments. Political anchorage, geographical scope, and time are also three dimensions that considerably influence the way urban freight transport is integrated in city planning. Insights from this analysis may be used to develop better ways of integrating freight transport into city planning in the future.
