The Importance of Logistics in a Strategic Management on the Basis of Several European Capital Cities

Maja Kiba-Janiak


The purpose of the paper is an analysis of the importance of logistics in city strategic management illustrated by an example of selected European capital cities. As a result of research a tool for the assessment of the scope of logistics involvement into strategic management in a city has been developed. On the basis of this tool a primary assessment of selected cities in this area has been conducted. According to the study there are still many European cities where freight transport is neglected. Despite the fact that all of the analyzed cities take into account objectives of freight transport in their development strategies, in practice many of them have not implemented any or a negligible number of projects in this area. The tool developed by the author will allow local governments to self-assess in a fairly simple way and based on it to take further steps to integrate logistics into all phases of strategic management in the city.
