Beschreibung

As concern for the environment rises, companies must take more account of the external costs of logistics associated mainly with climate change, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents. Leading the way in current thinking on environmental logistics, Green Logistics provides a unique insight on the environmental aspects of logistics. Edited by a leading team of academics with contributions from global industry leaders and researchers, it examines key issues facing the logistics industry today. Fully updated and revised, the 3rd Edition takes a more global perspective. It introduces new contributors and insightful international case studies that illustrate the impact of green logistics in practice. There is a new chapter on green hinterland logistics considering port and maritime issues written by Jean-Paul Rodrigue and Adolf Ng and four postscripts written by the editors on hot topics in the field. Ideal for use on related courses, the 3rd Edition includes indispensable online supporting materials as well as technical information and guidelines for teachers and lecturers. The book is endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
