green logistics, clean energy, optimization, eco-friendly


Logistics is no longer just a word for organization and optimization. What is new is, on the one hand, cost, smart technology and, on the other hand, minimizing and reducing waste, gases, vibrations and investment in eco-friendly solutions. As a result of the pollution, everything that is connected with ecology and efficiency mean not only a reduction of CO2 emissions, but also recycling and cost savings. Accordingly, the basic methods and principles of green logistics and clean energy and their relationship to logistics offered optimizing the cost for long term in combination with eco-friendly solutions. Related to the idea of using green logistics and clean energy, this paper discusses strategies, methods of implementation and an analysis of the various options.
