Abstract:

Regional logistics development plans have become a key element for an effective - regional economy in Austria. Efforts to develop the region of Carinthia – which represents a substantial transport hub on the Baltic-Adriatic-Axis – depend on targeted infrastructure investments combined with well-utilized and accessible modes of transport. As decisions on transport mode choice are made within companies, their involvement in planning processes is crucial. Therefore a more consistent approach to Carinthia’s logistics infrastructure developments is required. The view of regional businesses is considered a significant basis for further public and managerial decision making with regard to the importance of future logistics developments.
