The territorial context:

poznan fua

• Poznań FUA involved 22 municipalities
• 3 082 km2 – Poznań FUA area
• 1 022 844 – Poznań FUA number of inhabitants
• 177 865 - Poznań FUA number of the employers
• Surveyed area - City of Poznan
• 259 km2 – City of Poznan area
• 532 346 – City of Poznan population
• 25 328 - number of the employers
• 5 city zones used in the tool and in the o/d matrix

The area of the survey is the most logistically inconvenient area within the Poznan FUA due to a major problem with supplies within the city’s area
In the selection of the division criteria, a significant factor was the comparability of sizes and of amounts of population of the particular districts so that
they could be compared easily. The adopted variant is the most optimal of the possible divisions despite differences in sizes and populations of the zone

Data interpretation

• The vast majority of the surveyed entities have a small number of employees, which may be
due to the specific nature of the analysed industries and result of the Poznan enterprises
structure. There is no difference in terms of employment compared to other surveyed
companies from gastronomy and hotel sectors
• Most companies have 1 main supplier. Every 3 indicates 2 suppliers, and only 13% of the
surveyed entities have 3 suppliers. In a sense, this situation illustrates the level of
dependence of major suppliers of goods
• Most deliveries are made at least a few times a month, with one third of the companies using
more frequent deliveries, which may be due to very limited warehouse space
• Delivered goods are usually imported in boxes and cartons. The declarations of the surveyed
companies show that the delivery is generally short (up to 10-20 minutes) and the delivered
goods do not exceed several tens of kilograms
• Among the most frequently reported supply problems, respondents indicate difficulties in
accessing loading and unloading sites. The sense of security of the goods suffers from that
and delivery times are prolonged.
