    Academics and practitioners in Europe and elsewhere have attempted to pinpoint the key urban freight transport problems and identify potential sustainable solutions. In this framework, the aim of this study is the evaluation of the environmental outcomes derived from the development of an alternative transport option for the management of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), using a case study of a municipality in Athens, Greece. The proposed option is mostly based on rail transport, while current practice relies exclusively on road transport. For this purpose the CML 2 baseline 2000 tool was used and the results indicated that the proposed alternative scenario for MSW transport provides a sustainable solution. However, detailed feasibility study is required in order to evaluate the prerequisites, implications and benefits from such a practice that may be applicable in many cities worldwide which already have rail and tram infrastructure for the citizens’ transport movements.
