Abstract


Globalization and urbanization can lead to aggravation of economic, social, and environmental issues, which creates significant challenges for city management and especially city logistics. These challenges require an integrated approach to research and optimization and the introduction of innovative solutions, technological and organizational direction. The implementation of investment projects in cities should be in full accordance with the selected concept of city logistics, subordinate to objectives of sustainable development. Successful urban logistics is possible only with the use of innovative logistics technology based on supply chain concepts, efficient customer service, multimodal mobility and other effective solutions, however, active administrative steps on the implementation of city logistics strategy is needed. Main objectives of city logistics research are following: reduce congestion, increase urban mobility; reduce air pollution and noise; improve living conditions of city inhabitants.
