As a result of that in the 1970s and 1980s two catchwords have won more and more influence in transport policy- cargo transport centre and city logistics. With the help of different points we want to show you the advantages and disadvantages of these two possibillities of solutions of traffic caused problems. At first there are an introduction and some introducing words referring to the reason of the traffic problem. In the second chapter some theoretical basics and definitions are explained. The third chapter deals with the first catchword of the cargo transport centre.
