URBAN SPACE AND LOGISTICS: ON THE ROAD TO SUSTAINABILITY?

This paper deals with the interrelation of urban development, urban construction and commercial transport (goods movement, service industry) in towns, based on the research project "Sustainable Commercial Traffic" in the cities of Wuppertal, Solingen, Remschied (Germany) and other current German and Swiss activities. The project focused not only on steps for an integration of freight transport into urban transport planning but investigated also the different interests of urban planning and construction on the one hand and the companies on the other. To discuss problems and to moderate diverse interests between the operatives, a "Regional Freight Traffic Round Table" has been established. Concludes better communication is an important prerequisite for a sustainable transport development.
