4. Abstract: In the era of globalization and e-commerce, the dramatic growth in freight demand significantly contributes to the disproportionate distribution of relevant environmental externalities in urban areas. Based on the interrelationships between freight movement, land use development, and the environment, we analyzes and synthesizes the freight related environmental externalities from different temporal perspectives. In addition, we also links the environmental impacts, for instance, carbon emissions, to the courses of supply chain management and public policy making, and discusses about how such impacts can be effectively mitigated through strategies involving both the public and private sectors at various spatial scales. It indicates that the spatiotemporal framework would be helpful for evaluating the environmental impacts associated with freight demand in a comprehensive way. With the help of big data analytical techniques, policy makers can better understand the interactions between stakeholders and explore the path towards sustainable urban logistics in cities with booming freight demand and limited spatial resources.
