With the need for resource-saving within urban areas it is necessary to create traffic solutions which exhibit an efficient and environmentally-friendly infrastructure system. For the first time, the research project “ROPEWAY_POT II” will identify potential for a fully-integrated goods delivery and freight logistic urban cable car system as part of “last mile” logistics for the City of Graz, taking into consideration parallel use of cable cars in public passenger transport. The project started in March 2017 and will last for 24 months. It is funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG). The innovative system approach offers the possibility of bundling transport of goods from the city limits over the “last mile” to shops (C2C) and clients (C2B). As a result, highly-frequented transport routes within the city are relieved and negative environmental impacts are reduced. It is also considered that further synergy effects within the overall system of goods and passenger transport may be generated. After the introduction we present the objectives, expected results as well as the procedures and methods.
