The main goal of the authors of this publication is to analyse and evaluate the approach to the management of oversize loads in special transport vehicles. The analysis was made with regard to heavy and oversized transportation in Poland against the background of barriers and stimulants for heavy and oversized transportation in the European Union. The reasoning of the arguments is also to verify the research hypothesis: "Optimization of the management of oversize loads in special transport vehicles is possible thanks to a comprehensive platform for registering such shipments, applying for a permission to operate on roads, determining the route, monitoring carriers, as well as through permanent improvement of communication between public administration units". In this publication: oversize loads and special transport vehicles were defined and roughly classified; the place of heavy and oversized transportation was presented and requirements related to the movement of special transport vehicles were indicated; the approach to managing oversize loads in special transport vehicles in Poland was characterized; barriers and stimulants for the development of heavy and oversized transportation were diagnosed; as for heavy and oversized transportation in special transport vehicles in Poland, modifications were proposed.

The purpose of the article is to present the results of analyses regarding the management of waste from the end of life vehicles (ELV) from fourteen vehicle dismantling stations (VDS) in Poland. The study was based on an information from the secondary sources, including scientific publications, and statistical data from the available reports for 2017. The information concerns, among the others, production and management of the waste from ELVs. The analyses were carried out for selected enterprises located in the małopolskie and dolnośląskie voivodships. The result of the analyses is a scientific study on the management of waste from ELVs in the selected regions of Poland.

This paper analyses problems and solutions of urban freight transport in six cities of different sizes and economic profile in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The data were collected in commercial establishments and analyzed through descriptive statistics and using the method of successive intervals. The results obtained reflect the retailers' point of view and indicate that the problems and solutions are different in each city considered in this paper. The availability of unloading zones is the main problem in Betim, Belo Horizonte, Contagem and Itabira. The off-peak delivery is viewed as a solution in Divinópolis, Betim and Itabira. Therefore, with no possibility to determine a single remedy as a broad national solution to urban freight transport, it is instead necessary to investigate the realities of each city so that the policymakers could implement local solutions that reduce the externalities of urban freight transport.

Keywords: urban freight transport; retailers; problems and solutions (miejski transport towarowy; detaliści; problemy i rozwiązania)
