City of Berlin

Introduction

Image City of Berlin

Berlin is the capital city of Germany and one of the 16 Federal States of Germany. With a population of 3.5 million people, Berlin is Germany's largest city.

Urban goods transport in Berlin, with its historical multi-centers, is both the essential backbone of a vital and prosperous German capital and one of the main sources for conflicts, particularly from an environmental perspective. There are considerable transport-induced problems that create a strong need for action: air quality standards are exceeded, noise emissions have to be reduced to improve the quality of life and the level of greenhouse gas emissions is still too high.
