Continuously increasing freight traffic volumes, which negatively impact the quality of life of citizens as well as the economic efficiency of companies due to noise and congestion, are a typical characteristic of today's cities. Urban road haulage - currently conducted to a large extent by fossil-fueled vehicles - causes large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions which result in negative climate effects. Within the framework of urban logistics, it is therefore essential to adopt suitable measures in urban freight transport, which enable a reduction in emissions while ensuring high-quality but also economic supply and disposal for a city. In our work, the basis is an origin-destination-model of freight traffic flows of selected sectors. On the one hand, the model builds on traffic data from the City of Vienna and the Asfinag, and on data provided by selected companies from 5 sectors (CEP, construction site traffic, food, non-food consumer goods and waste disposal). Based on this model, specific measures (shift to low emission/non-emission vehicles, multimodal transport, and usage of consolidation centers) can be evaluated for their suitability with regard to emission reduction, quality of supply/disposal and economic efficiency. Finally, the selected measures are evaluated for a specific company and its freight transport scheme in Vienna. Thus, the results of our work can serve affected stakeholder groups as decision support in urban transport policy.
