Sammanfattning

There is growing academic and practitioner interest in sustainability across the supply chain, including at transport nodes. This chapter develops a definition of supply chain sustain-ability, adopting a broad supply chain concept and a perspective of sustainability spanning four dimensions: economic, environmental, social and cultural. Sustainable supply chain thinking is applied to the context of transport nodes, which a special emphasis on “inland ports.” Several cases of sustainability initiatives at existing inland ports serve as examples of what is possible. Promotion of inland ports is a cross-cutting theme, since supply chain sustainability initiatives tend to involve customers—and alter the traditional cost/service trade-off in logistics.
