Sustainable supply chains

Often, the greatest environment or societal impacts of supply chains originate not from the main company involved, but rather from earlier parts of the supply chain or from the customer.

As supply chains become ever longer, and networks ever more complex, new challenges arise, posing questions about how we should work with sustainable logistics. In this area, we study the traditional product supply chain as well as the transport supply chain and interaction between different actors involved. For example, we strive to increase our understanding of successful collaboration, innovative tools and methods that help ensure increased sustainability in supply chains.

Sustainable supply chains are one of our eight research areas in climate smart transport systems.
