Separate sections are assigned to discuss issues related to greening of logistics and transportation functions, including green logistics network, green land transportation, and green air and water transportation. Linking research with practice is another important feature of the book as various techniques and research methodologies are utilized to explain and analyze green logistics and transportation concepts and issues. The authors come from throughoutthe world from a variety of backgrounds (e.g. policy, technical, engineering, and management backgrounds) to provide solutions and insights from their regional and global perspectives to some of the world’s most critical green logistics and transportation issues.
