Logistics refers to the forward and reverse flow of goods, services, and related information between points of interest. Considering the rapidly expanding global population and economy, logistics represents a key area that governments, businesses and the general population can improve upon to enhance environmental sustainability. Whether it is a company doing business offshore and requires raw materials or finished goods to be transported across continents, or a government looking to incentivize behavior, implications of green logistics practices are far reaching. Globalisation, e-commerce, aging population and urbanisation present real challenges for improving the sustainability of logistics systems. New approaches are required for reducing the negative impacts of production, storage, consumption and distribution of goods.
This Special Issue on Green Logistics will address this vast, emerging area by emphasising more environmentally sustainable ways to transport, store, and distribute goods, services, people and information. Any research the covers a topic encompassed by the keywords below is welcomed.
