Green Logistics

What is Green Logistics?

Sustainable policies that are devoted to reducing the environmental impact created in all logistics activities are known as green logistics. Green logistics or eco-logistics aims to find a balance between ecology and economy. These policies affect the following areas: reducing freight transport externalities, city logistics, reverse logistics, corporate environmental strategies, systems and structures in transport, the configuration of processes as well as distribution and storage of goods. To implement green logistics in your supply chain, the following needs to be done:

Ethical Sourcing Companies are responsible to look closely into their supplier relationships and partner with only those that focus on human, animal, and environmental wellness. Manufacturers need to source sustainable raw materials and for retailers, promoting sustainably manufactured products, and using green packaging and delivery materials.

Green packaging Many businesses resort to recycled packaging, sheets, recycled plastic, and eco-friendly fillers to package goods sustainably. Environmentally conscious modern customers support this.

Sustainable warehousing Investing in lighting and equipment that cuts energy consumption and controls maintenance costs without compromising on productivity constitutes sustainable warehouse management.
