9780749456788: Green Logistics: Improving the Environmental Sustainability of Logistics

Logistics aims to co-ordinate the movement of products through the supply chain in a way that meets customer requirements at minimum cost. In the past this cost has been defined in purely monetary terms. However, as concern for the environment rises, companies must take more account of the external costs of logistics associated with climate change, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents. 
Green Logistics
analyzes the environmental consequences of logistics and how to redress them. Written by a leading team of logistics academics, the book examines ways of reducing these impacts and achieving a more sustainable balance among economic, environmental, and social objectives. It examines key areas in this important subject including:
* Carbon auditing of supply chains
* Transferring freight to “greener” transport modes
* Developing “greener” vehicles, aircrafts and ships
* Reducing the environmental impact of warehousing
* Improving fuel efficiency in freight transport
* Making city logistics more environmentally sustainable
* Reverse logistics for the management of waste
* The role of the government in promoting sustainable logistics
