Regional traffic impacts of logistics-related land use
The outsourcing of logistics activities to logistics service providers leads to a demand for new logistics-related land development. At the moment (minimising) regional traffic generation is not a major decision criterion for site selection and development. For a sound traffic impact assessment, information on trip generation of logistics facilities like transfer depots, distribution centres and warehouses is necessary. Surveys conducted in the case study region Hamburg, Germany, provide such information. Applying the survey results, different logistics land use development scenarios are assessed in this paper. The results show that strategic location of logistics areas can reduce traffic and traffic impacts.
