Abstract

The article deals with transport logistics as one of the factors for improving the quality of life both in general and in the regional context. The analysis in this case is based on the fact that transport logistics can be seen to have an obvious role here — both directly through investment in transport infrastructure, vehicles, and logistics systems, increasing physical capital; and indirectly through the impact that more efficient transport can have by inducing greater efficiency in the way that other sectors use their own inputs. Beyond the initial effects of transport investment on journey times and costs, labour market, agglomeration and transport network effects also influence the long-term impacts of transport investment on economic growth and urban/regional development. Each of these wider economic impacts has a spatial dimension through their influence on the location and geography of economic and social activity. Objectives, methods, and the particular results of investigations resulted in the definition and characteristics of the transport logistics in terms of the European Union with reference to their application and impact on quality of life in a regional context. The region is perceived as a territorial unit between the state and municipalities, resulting in the need for a specific approach to address the problem, which can then be developed.

 

Key words: transport logistics, logistics system, investments, quality of life, region
