Munich’s Logistics Concept


State Capital Munich




KE Consult and SSP Consult

Our mission

Traffic in German cities continues to increase. The City of Munich therefore wants to limit the diverse burdens caused by the growing logistics transport.

Prognos was commissioned by the state capital Munich to create an integrated logistics concept in cooperation with KE Consult and SSP Consult. The focus is deliberately not only on emissions, but also on the entire range of stresses induced by the logistics processes (infrastructure conflicts, traffic delays, accident risks, reduced quality of living conditions). At the same time, it is important that the concept also secures the supply to business and the population and enables or supports economic development opportunities.

Our approach

The fundamental approach of the partners is to closely link sound scientific analysis and practical knowledge from experts with a multi-stage participation process: On the basis of the well-established knowledge, discussions with stakeholders are accompanied in five stages and ideas capable of consensus are successively worked out. Here the idea is to start from rough ideas and then fine tune them: Firstly, fundamental expectations and goals are negotiated, then areas of action and measures are identified in subsequent meetings. These are then further specified toward implementation maturity, and then finally they are incorporated into an overall concept. As a result, this includes an implementation strategy and addresses measures for two levels: For the entire urban area, as well as specifically for the central urban focus area, where the requirements, urgency, and accuracy of the measures differ from those of the entire city.

Scenarios for calculating the cost of Germany’s transport transition

| Project

What level of investment will be required to ensure a climate-neutral transport sector by 2045? We calculated this on behalf of Agora Verkehrswende, based on three scenarios.

Decarbonisation of the automotive industry

| Project

Digitalisation, decarbonisation, electrification: The German automotive industry faces major challenges. Prognos led the accompanying research to the carbon assessment of the auto industry value chain, on behalf of the BMWK.

Electromobility standards

| Project

The electromobility of the future will interact with other intelligent systems. But for this to be possible digital technologies will have to be standardised. The study shows in which areas standardisation is particularly relevant and how standards are established.

Alternative transport scenario for Germany

| Project

Environmental organisations have tasked Prognos with adapting selected assumptions from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure transport forecasts to facilitate climate-friendly transport development.

Climate-impacting transformation in the transport sector

| Project

The latest geopolitical and economic developments present a challenge for the ecological transi-tion of transport. Prognos develops measures for the BMDV.

Reforming environmentally harmful subsidies

| Project

On behalf of the Bertelsmann Stiftung, we examined the effects of phasing out climate damaging subsidies in the transport and industry sectors.

Innovations for the mobility and space transition in NRW

| Project update

Mobility and spatial planning are key issues for the green economy. For this purpose, in cooperation with Prognos, the Kompetenznetzwerk Umweltwirtschaft.NRW compiled an innovation radar.

Sustainable end-of-life vehicle recycling

| Project

Circular economy in practice: As part of the MaterialLoop project, we have been working with Audi and TSR on how more materials from end-of-life vehicles can be used in the production of new vehicles.

Evaluation and further development of the national Emissions Trading System (nETS)

| Project

On behalf of the Federal Environment Agency, we are developing suitable approaches for the impact assessment of the nETS together with the FÖS and the DIW.

Impact of e-commerce on CO2 emissions and air pollution

| Project

We examined retail transport chains for the EU Commission. For the environment, long-distance transport to the EU and the “last mile” play a crucial role.
