This e-book contains papers which focus on logistics solutions and supply chains in times of climate change. The papers investigate the current and future implications of climate change, and in particular, energy efficiency for logistics and supply chain management. Against the backdrop of climate change, a conceptual framework is constructed that reflects on the immediate and tangible effects of a sustainable agenda on logistics and supply chain management. Energy efficiency has been largely neglected in logistics and supply chain management.

At the same time, considering energy efficiency requires considerable rethinking on the operational level (from transportation emissions to the cold chain) as well as even the conceptual level. The energy agenda needs a further development of logistics theory and practice. This e-book highlights the challenges of sustainability and energy in the context of logistics and supply chain management pertaining to their novelty, importance, and interdependence.

Supply chain management needs to develop new performance measures that include measures of energy efficiency, in order to adapt to an environment where the old assumption of low fuel costs does not hold stand.
