With this article we discuss the issue of the spatial structuring impacts of underground logistical systems. Until now the research is focussed on technological, strategic, legal, conceptual and economic aspects of the construction of underground logistic systems. We argue that underground logistical systems may have a large impact on the spatial structure of urban areas in the long term. In this article we give some information of some recently started pilot projects on the construction of underground logistic systems. Next we give a brief state-of-art review of the research efforts in the Netherlands. We conclude by addressing the issue of the spatial structuring effects of underground logistical systems. Special attention is paid to possible spatial implications of the gradual evolution of such a system.
