The Implementation of Environmental Friendly City Logistics in South Baltic Region Cities
The European Council has set the target to reduce European greenhouse gas emissions by 20% till 2020. The negative impacts of urban goods distribution are mainly caused by used vehicles (e.g. diesel-powered) and low system efficiency (e.g. low loading factor, low cooperation). The paper is focused on the introduction of the activities realized under new project – Low Carbon Logistic. It’s realized under the Interreg South Baltic Programme. The major objective of this project is to implement the low carbon city logistics measures in 5 pilot cities as well as to promote and support this kind of activities in South Baltic Region. The aim of the paper is to introduce the assumptions for the activities realized in pilot cities. The planned results will be mostly focused on development of consolidation systems and implementation of alternative fuelled vehicles (EV and cargo-bikes). Also the major elements of LCL approach have been introduced.
