Urban/City Logisitcs: Driving Towards Sustainability
What used to require five separate steps can now be done with one click. Now that the implementation phase of about six to eight months is over, we are convinced that the decision to choose Soloplan was the right one. It offers a much better overview and our planners have more relevant information available and faster — as everything happens within a single system. So, we looked at the most important transport management systems in Europe and eventually decided that Soloplan offered the best quality to price ratio.
The system not only convinced us with regards to planning and scheduling transports but also with its functions for creating forecasts and simulations.

Furthermore, city planners do not always incorporate logistics considerations in to new urban development, further complicating logistics efforts of firms trying to serve their urban customers.
Issues of congestion, traffic flow, pollution, visual intrusion, and road safety see, for example, Allen et al. At the same time, increased freight demands combined with demand for faster deliveries presents further challenges for logistics managers in what is already a complex business environment. Innovations such as the use of urban consolidation centers, public-private collaboration, off-peak deliveries, and crowdsourced deliveries provide interesting solution options.
However, the overriding focus of the extant urban logistics literature has taken on the mantle of efficiency-while-meeting-customer-service-expectations as the primary goal of firms. Initial forays into urban sustainability are seen within urban freight research; city logistics has been singled out as one of five themes within green logistics McKinnon, However, researchers have yet to address the challenges of urban logistics employing a more holistic sustainability lens.
Researchers are urged to address their urban logistics research from a broader triple bottom line perspective, taking into consideration synergies and tradeoffs. Authors are also encouraged to go beyond the traditional environmental and social aspects of congestion, outlets, and energy use. Sustainable city logistics must take into consideration the goals put forward in the United Nations Sustainability goals for To that end, scholars are urged to submit thought provoking research on sustainable solutions within the urban logistics context.
