Logistics are essential for urban areas to function successfully. Distribution in urban conurbations makes up a significant share of urban traffic as part of regional, national and international supply chains and it is expected to grow further increasing costs.

There is significant potential to improve urban logistics operations and services and captive fleets. A holistic vision should cover freight transport and pay attention to aspects of land use planning, environmental considerations and traffic management, among other factors.

Facilitating freight and passenger transport demand management should be an integral part of urban planning and it should provide opportunities for the deployment of innovative communication technologies (ICT) based solutions. New and increasingly cost effective ICT technologies can help provide clear information about possible routes, restrictions, parking, support services, alternative solutions and administrative procedures.
