    Abstract : The energy consumption in logistics, and especially in road freight transportation, is steadily increasing and with that the greenhouse gas emissions which have a negative impact on the environment. In order to improve environmental sustainability of logistics, a change in the actors’ behaviour and policies is needed since the development of technology alone is not sufficient. READ MORE
