Special Issue "Sustainable Urban Logistics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 October 2019.
The concept of logistics typically entails studies geared toward identifying the best solutions for urban freight distributions. Generally, these studies were based on transport cost and time minimization while neglecting environmental protection. Currently, researchers around the globe are displaying passion for sustainable urban logistics, which encapsulates the efficient operation of logistics systems and prioritizing environmental protection.
The issue of sustainable urban logistics is imperative due to the rapid growth experienced in cities worldwide. In dense urban environments where congestion is prevalent, logistics service delivery is severely impaired. These days, logistics processes are evolving, and new ideas such as logistics collaboration, pooling, and green logistics have been identified to save delivery costs and time through economies of scale. These has been identified as great remedies for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction.
This Special Issue seeks to collect research articles that explore sustainable urban logistics geared toward realizing a reduction in pollution and mitigating the effects of congestion, and efficient logistics systems. Policy oriented papers that provide insights into modern logistics approaches that focus on GHG emission measures are also welcomed.
