Large cities have experienced problems associated with high traffic congestion especially during peak periods, followed by several serious problems of an environmental, time and economic character. At the same time, a large contribution to this is due to freight transport. The paper aims to assess the primary possible implementation of a parking ban and time window for trucks due to reduce the negative effects of freight transport in Kharkiv including decreasing traffic congestion, environmental improvement, and economic impact. To achieve this goal, two initiatives are introduced, considering their impact on traffic participants and stakeholders, namely reducing congestion and, therefore, traffic delays, emissions, noise, improving road safety for both pedestrians and drivers on a selected section of the road network of the city of Kharkiv. The assessment of the measures considered is based on the Logistics Sustainability Index methodology using a Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis.
