This master thesis is designed to show the impact of parking management on the movement of shipments and services throughout cities, also referred to as “commer-cial traffic”. This research provides a comparison focus on the cities Vienna, Munich and Bolzano. An analysis of these three cities shows that they have to cope with higher traffic volume, which influences not only the moving but also the stationary traffic. An increase in e-commerce is one of the main reasons for the increase in traf-fic volume, especially by so called CEP providers (Courier, Express and Parcel). Fur-thermore, the service sector (e.g. craftsman) as an essential part of the traffic struc-ture within a city found little or no reference in urban transport planning processes. Therefore, the service sector was also included in the analysis. The impact of parking management has been determined from expert interviews and an online survey with forwarders and service providers. This data is a necessity in order to understand the situation and for the future recommendations made in this research study. These recommendations should be included in the transport planning process of Vienna, Munich and Bolzano, but may also be adopted for other cities and municipalities.
