Many reported cases of city logistics in literature have been dominated by developed countries and the numbers of cases have significantly increased over time. On one hand, it is argued that the city characteristics in developed countries differ from those in developing countries. The different characteristics may lead to different problems and different approaches to solving the problems. This paper provides practices of city logistics in developing countries. The purpose of the present study is to identify the dominance factors, typical city logistics problems, and associated with the level of study in some developing countries. This paper describes literature-based research that has sought to understand the practices of city logistics in developing countries. The literature review process used a bibliometric analysis and followed by a systematic literature review to organize 118 papers relating to the concept and the practice of city logistics. We identify the weak consideration of aspects of stakeholder behavior in city logistics policy planning in developing countries is the dominant factor. Meanwhile, city logistics concepts and models in developing countries have been widely studied. Based on the classification, the typical problem or subject of city logistics that appears in developing countries is related to transportation networks, routing, loading and unloading systems, and collaborative planning. Many previous studies used an analytical, heuristic, and simulation approach to solve problems.
