Abstract

Food supply chains (FSCs) require different quantitative models for aiding management decisions, mainly because of the perishability of the product. Addition of sustainability concerns makes models for the FSCs more challenging. In this study, we develop a generic MILP model for the logistics management of FSCs while considering the perishability of the products and the sustainability (GHG emissions) of the transportation modes. The model minimizes various costs, while fulfilling demand requirements and can be used as a decision support tool for improving the sustainability of FSCs.
