According to the Daily News, home delivery services like Amazon and FreshDirect are further clogging New York's already busy streets.  90% of city goods are brought in by trucks, and delivery services are creating a bigger challenge for the Department of Transportation.

City Councilman Mark Levine (D-Manhattan) has proposed a bill that would require the city to perform a study on commercial vs home truck deliveries.  He believe commercial truck deliveries are still the main problem and would like to see limits imposed on rush hour deliveries.

According to FreshDirect, their fleet has been reduced in the city, as well as increased its number of hybrid vehicles.
