Selected issues of shaping the cargo distribution system with the use of cargo bikes inside the urban agglomeration
Abstract: The article addresses the issue of improving the efficiency of cargo delivery in historic centers of large cities and agglomerations, using cargo bicycles. It is a description of selected issues falling within the scope of the author’s doctoral dissertation. The article presents a mathematical model of the delivery system, within which the following elements have been identified: the criterion for evaluating the system’s effectiveness, the model of demand for cargo delivery, the methods of vehicle routing and the methods of selecting the location of reloading points. All elements are characterized in later parts of the text.
