Abstract

Presently, in Hungary does not exist any special regulation in the field of urban freight transport and distribution. The new transport policy that has not yet been in force does not contain detailed regulations about the urban transportation because a new urban transport strategy is under development. For creating better and efficient strategy it is necessary to analyse the EU regulation system. However, there is not an all-embracing single urban freight transport policy on the EU level. Instead, there are many urban freight transport policies, for many different territorial units. In addition, in one city there is a much stricter policy than in another, or in one region, there is a well-balanced system of policies and in another region, no policy whatsoever exists in urban freight transport. The aim of this short contribution is to overview the EU policies, regulations and development activities in the area of urban freight distribution.
