Despite the fact that cities differ in size, economy, political and cultural frameworks, the transport sector plays a strong role in all of them. In the European Union, many policy measures have been taken in the last decade regarding urban freight transport. The article presents the first step in the implementation of the Low Carbon Logistics project (LCL). This project is funded under the Interreg South Baltic Region Programme. The project focuses on tourist cities in the Baltic Sea region. This region is distinguished for its unique biodiversity, micro climate that is suitable for the development of recreational tourism and resort zones. However, at the same time this region is mostly affected by high levels of pollution.
