Green Logistics: Optimisation approaches for resource-efficent logistics services
Today, appropriate measures can already simultaneously reduce costs, improve process sequences and reduce the effects on the environment. With optimisation approaches, for instance in the sectors of network, fleet and container management, tour planning and intermodality, the "Green Logistics" partners demonstrate the practicability and potential of environmentally-friendly logistics services. This paper provides a detailed description of the approaches, "Pollutant emission tracking for transports" and "Resource-efficient logistics real estate", and an explanation of the respective procedures and initial results. In addition to the development of concrete green products, "Green Logistics" also deduces action recommendations and guidelines that support other logistics industry participants in applying the "Green Logistics" successes to their own business processes.
