Investigation of planning strategies for storage, distribution and market places within the scope of urban logistics: The case of İzmir


Urban land use areas that interact with urban logistics are terminals, warehouses, networks, storage areas, market places and distribution areas. These areas occupy a large space in the city and influence urban-spatial interactions and urban-accessibility. The establishment of the industrial society has created an excess of production and demand in all sectors. Therefore, warehouses, marketing and distribution areas have nowadays become the direct area of study in many fields, from the real estate sector to the logistics sector. Examining the logistics movement, researching the capacity and location selection relations of warehouses, distribution centers and marketing places and addressing them in a holistic way are important analytical processes in establishing relations between city centers and agricultural and rural areas. Relating storage, distribution and marketing places to city planning in terms of logistics, site selection, accessibility, cultural, economic and social aspects will enable more effective and accurate decisions in the analysis of capacity and location choices, as well as in the production of high-scale principles, strategies, policies and approaches. In this study, the capacities, spatial sizes and locations of the storage, distribution and marketing places in İzmir are examined. The problems are approached as general and local problem points. Spatial sizes and locations of marketplaces, organic markets, storage areas, cold storage, fruit and vegetable wholesale markets, fish wholesale markets and integrated meat facilities were evaluated by comparing demographic data, agricultural production rates and other urban characteristics. The evaluations were made in terms of logistic movements in İzmir, freight transport characteristics in rural areas and OD (Origin-Destination) matrices. Approach and planning principle recommendations regarding the planning of storage, distribution and marketing places in İzmir were produced as a result of the research. Paradigms were produced regarding the selection of location and the sub-detail research topics that forms of logistic planning intervention should address.
