Logistic platforms and transfer poles: between conformation and utility

Catrinel Elena Cotae

Rezumat/Abstract. Considering the current trend in sustainable regional development, transfer nodes and logistic platforms represent an essential component of the transport systems, while playing an important part in the distribution of merchandise at a global level and having a binding role in the current urban and regional system. At the same time, these are relevant segments for a functional regional economy. Moreover, optimizing the transport systems for freight distribution, will allow further regional and territorial development. Any changes implemented in the existing transport systems will most likely affect the companies that take advantage of that infrastructure, generating either growth or shrinkage in the local GDP.
