Supply chain of the future focuses on analyzing the implications of considering CO2 emissions in logistics decisions. Companies can potentially achieve important reductions in carbon emissions by making better logistics decisions.
E.g. truck assignment, replenishment strategies, vehicle routing, adopt purchase practices, choose the most efficient modes and carriers, optimise routes and networks for maximum fuel efficiency, set a Science-Based Target that aligns with global climate goals, etc.
