Cooperation and consolidation of flows in city logistics
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering
Abstract
Urban logistics systems are intensively changing and adapting to the demands of efficient supply and environmental protection. The productivity and profitability of companies and satisfaction of the resident's requirements in terms of the availability of various goods at lower prices, depends on the efficiency of the urban logistics system. On the other side, the level of interest in the environment is growing and initiates researches and implementation of effective and sustainable initiatives, city logistics concepts. The most frequently applied initiatives are those that relate to the regulation or restrictions and control of access for the urban freight vehicles. However, these initiatives don't solve the problems of commodity flows and can worsen logistics performance. Furthermore, they have not proved effective in terms of the environment and economy. For this reason, the concepts that involve the cooperation of carriers and consolidation of flows are promoted. They are focused on logistics activities and can provide many positive effects for the purpose of environmental and economic sustainability. Nevertheless, they are rarely implemented in practice, and most were scarcely successful. Mentioned facts indicate the importance of research of these conceptions, both from the aspect of the structure and characteristics of the logistics system, and the aspect of the role and functions of the public sector in their promotion.
