About this book


This book addresses critical issues in today’s logistics operations and supply chain management, with a special focus on sustainability.  In dedicated chapters the authors address aspects concerning multimode logistics operations, reverse network configuration, forward and reverse supply chain integration, improvement of the production operations and management of the recovery activities, as well as carbon footprint reduction in transportation. Selected best practices from different countries and industries are presented to aid in the implementation of sustainable policies in private enterprises and at public-sector institutions. The book offers a valuable resource for both academics and practitioners who wish to deepen their expertise in the field of logistics operations and management with regard to sustainability issues.  The book examines both qualitative and qualitative aspects of sustainable supply chain and logistics operations.
