Abstract: City infrastructure is suffering from multiple use, congestions, noise, air pollution at least at peak-hours. The increasing demand for e-commerce products aggravates this development even further. The paper at hand bases on the least-cost principle from economics and adapts it to the urban freight transport sector. With this, we show that both, logistics service providers and government have possibilities to not only extend infrastructure even further but can use additional measures to mitigate the multiple pressure on a city’s infrastructure.
