Lecture Notes in Logistics

Sustainable Logistics

Responses to a Global Challenge

Authors: Bretzke, Wolf-Rüdiger, Barkawi, Karim

  • The discussion of the necessary adjustments of process models and network architectures in the field of logistics is embedded into the lager picture of the discussion of "sustainability" on the level of the whole economic system and of politics intervening into the market mechanism
  • Models still  regarded as "best practiced" are seriously questioned referring to their environmental implications
  • The book covers a broad field of action including political options like road pricing or markets for emission permits, the decentralization of distribution and production networks or the challenges posed by unsolved problems in the field of city logistics

About this book

Currently the notion of "sustainability" is used in an inflationary manner. Therefore the authors start with a definition which is stable to serve as an anchor for further research as well as for discussions among scientists, managers and politicians, ideally across different disciplines. The character of this book is purely conceptual. The argumentation is based on comparison of new and demanding requisites with existing models (process and network architectures in the field of logistics). Formerly neglected impacts on the environment will be included. Main features of a new approach will be developed which are capable to avoid these impacts and to align logistics with the requirements of sustainability.
In order to make logistics sustainable large parts will have to be reinvented. The focus needs to be on decoupling transportation activities from economic growth rates.
