Commercial Transport in Urban Areas

Veröffentlichungsangaben
Sonderveröffentlichungen, 2017, 29 S., zahlreiche Abbildungen, englisch

Commercial transport has an immense importance in our cities - especially downtown areas – to ensure supplies reach the local population, to organize waste removal, and to promote processes of economic exchange. Just like the society and national economies are subject to constant (including structural) change, commercial transport, too, is changing incessantly – today, any-time delivery, timeliness and speed of deliveries are top priorities.

European cities need to find solutions to the ambitious aims set in the EU White Paper on Urban Mobility concerning air pollution, noise and emissions of CO2. Because of the increasing support for these goals by legislation, it is now essential to find better solutions for the planning and management of commercial transport and urban goods movements. The recent Climate Protection Plan 2050 of the German government contains a specific target for CO2 reduction for the transport sector. This target can meet only by realisation of resolute emission reduction strategies in commercial transport. This publication will give a short view on selected approaches in Germany.
