Getting supply chain strategies involved in “E-commerce & Environment” - a research potentioal for LCA case studies

Abukhader, Sajed LU and Jönsson, Gunilla (2004) 10th World Congress on Transport Research
Abstract
Based on a previous content analysis work, there is nowadays a need for assessing a list of strategies related to the management of supply chains and logistics discipline, such as postponement, customisation, centralisation/decentralisation, etc. The need for environmental assessment of these strategies stems from the challenging necessity for bridging two fields: logistics/supply chain management field, and the environmental field. Equally important, a cumulating experience from performing such assessments would hopefully enhance the ability of assessing complex issues such as E-commerce within a framework of a recent, novel model of assessment – ‘the horizontal assessment’. The ultimate purpose of this paper is to discuss the windows of... (More)
Based on a previous content analysis work, there is nowadays a need for assessing a list of strategies related to the management of supply chains and logistics discipline, such as postponement, customisation, centralisation/decentralisation, etc. The need for environmental assessment of these strategies stems from the challenging necessity for bridging two fields: logistics/supply chain management field, and the environmental field. Equally important, a cumulating experience from performing such assessments would hopefully enhance the ability of assessing complex issues such as E-commerce within a framework of a recent, novel model of assessment – ‘the horizontal assessment’. The ultimate purpose of this paper is to discuss the windows of opportunities of environmental assessment of these strategies. One idea is: to acquire the experience of LCA case studies and Energy analysis studies as an input for this model. Research methods of literature survey, case survey and concept development are conducted to discuss and model the aspects and elements of this idea. (Less)
