The City of Krakow will develop a new scheme of goods distribution with usage of clean and more environment friendly vehicles. A feasibility study concerning the system for the distribution of goods in the city centre of Krakow, using clean and energy efficient vehicles will be taken. Initial implementation will be made within the city centre on the main square area. With the goods distribution system, the private delivery service in the old city centre shall be reduced by about 50%. Within the urban goods distribution system, the particular objectives shall be achieved which are the improving of the regulation on access control of private commercial vehicles in the inner city area in order to decrease the amount of private goods deliveries and the building up the concept design of the goods delivery system. Research and technological development activities are conducted concerning the design of the scheme of the goods delivery concept in Krakow, the planning layout and the operations of the logistic centre, linking with this activity also the involvement of present couriers, operators, and of all potential stakeholders in the decision-making process.

Among the expected results and targets that can be easily verified are the reduction of goods vehicle traffic in the demonstration area by 50%, the increasing of free space for pedestrians, the improving of the environmental situation and the obtaining of the acceptance level of shopkeepers above 65%.
