The most commonly cited definition of sustainable development is certainly from the Brundtland Report, which describes sustainable development as “development that meets the needs of current generations without compromising the needs of future generations”. Understanding the transport system requires an integrative intermodal approach and knowledge of the basic principles of sustainable development. The deployment of new intelligent transport technologies across all branches of transport will reduce costs, increase energy efficiency and improve protection, and provide new services to citizens, such as real-time traffic and tracking capabilities. When looking at a transport company, digitalization should contribute to eliminating all obstacles on transport routes, reducing traffic accidents, and reducing the presence of driver activity in the traffic process. The environmental dimension of sustainable development relates to environmental issues. In Europe, over 60% of the population generates about 85% of the European Union's gross domestic product (GDP) in cities. Logistics can be defined as managing the flow of goods and raw materials, the processes of manufacturing finished products and associated information from the point of source to the point of end use according to the needs of the customer. Logistic activities in the city, and above all urban freight transport, are not sustainable. It is necessary to raise awareness of all stakeholders about the importance of exploring and defining different initiatives and concepts of city logistics that would enable sustainable urban development
