Sustainable Logistics Management!

Logistics management is focused on the planning, design, and control of the process that transforms inputs into outputs. In this article, sustainable logistics management is defined and discussed in detail.
A sustainable logistics management system according to Kaplan et al. (2008) combines all three major activities of managing logistics (i.e., supply chain management, inventory control, and transportation systems) with environmental sustainability considerations (i.e., fair trade principles). This system is composed of a series of steps that include goal setting, evaluation of services and products offered by suppliers as well as identification of production processes utilized by them such that they comply with the highest standards for environmental sustainability.
Sustainable logistics management is the practice of managing a company’s logistics while considering its social and environmental impact. It includes the consideration of raw materials, energy use, and waste treatment. Sustainable logistics also take contingency measures to meet emergencies as well as long-term needs.
We cannot continue to manage our global supply chains in the same way as before.
Sustainable logistics management (SLM) offers a promising alternative that aims to reduce the environmental and social costs of product transportation by optimizing the whole process.
SLM is not only about reducing emissions or making design changes, it also includes redesigning supply chains and considering a whole new set of drivers, such as governance, gender equity, and social inclusion.
The benefits of SLM are far-reaching—reducing emissions in production, distribution and consumption phase; saving money on transportation; reducing fuel consumption; mitigating greenhouse gas emissions; improving employee morale; ensuring safe products for consumers through safer working conditions.
SLMs provide measurable benefits for all stakeholders—customers, producers, employees, communities
Some major benefits to sustainable logistics management are:
The first is that it reduces transport emissions because trucks use less fuel when they don’t have to drive too far.
The second is that it helps with congestion and disruption in traffic because fewer transportation vehicles are on the roads.
A third benefit is that it can help with product costs since freight carriers charge by weight, so less weight means lower prices for products.
Sustainable logistics management is a proactive approach that looks at the least impactful way to deliver products to customers.
