Logistics centre – location and its significance for the city

Waldemar W. Budner , Kinga Pawlicka


Logistics centres play an important part in the logistics infrastructure. They have become a noticeable element of the economic landscape characteristic for cities and suburban areas. Apart from typical functions and goals of the logistics centres resulting from their logistics operations, they also have an exogenic function, which means that, as a result of their interactions with the local environment, they spur the development of the local economy. The aim of the present paper is to determine the location factors facilitating the establishment of logistics centres as well as to assess their benefits for the local economy. Theoretical conclusions drawn within the paper are supported by the empirical analysis performed on a seven logistics centres. The survey was based on an questionnaire addressed to companies in Poland. The areas which offer the combination of the above mentioned location factors are sought by the companies as they enable them to reduce the investment costs and daily operation costs, as well as enable the companies to increase profit and decrease the investment risk.
