Stakeholders' points of view are important in order to determine public policies regarding urban freight transport (UFT). This chapter gives the viewpoint of industries, carriers and retailers, from different sectors that drive the Brazilian economy, on UFT. It focuses on identifying stakeholders' perceptions about urban freight problems and potential solutions on the national level. The chapter indicates that large enterprises, regarding the participation on the GDP, are conscious of the need for solutions to minimize UFT problems. UFT planning is a good option for the improvement of the transportation infrastructure in Brazil. In a global market, flows of merchandise and cargo need to be easy, rapid and low-cost, since they contribute to enhancing the competitiveness in Brazil. The economic activities are jeopardized when UFT does not accompany the country's growth. The development of UFT is directly connected to the development of economic activities. Inglês 658.7 C581 2018
