Who Controls Carbon Emissions from Transport and Who Cares? Investigating the Monitoring of Co2 from a Logistics Service Provider’s Perspective

Nilsson, Fredrik LU ; Sternberg, Henrik LU and Klaas-Wissing, Thorsten (2015) 20th International Symposium on Logistics - ISL 2015
Abstract
This article explores the environmental impact of logistics service provider (LPS) activities in the light of increased customer priorities and the fragmentation of the industry. The research is based on a narrative literature review, an interview study, a case survey, and three in-depth case studies. A framework on sustainability challenges in supply chains derived from the literature is used to structure and analyse the findings. Despite the ambitious environmental schemes communicated by several LSPs, they show little interest in and exert little control over the actual emissions generated from their transport operations. Any real concern for environmental solutions that negatively impact the cost and time requirements from customers of... (More)
