Today, climate change is the greatest challenge for future generations. In particular, logistics is perceived as a key sector to contribute to sustainable development meeting the future generations’ needs in terms of low greenhouse gas emissions in a socially and economically responsible way. Green logistics involves all attempts to reduce the ecological impact of peoples’ mobility, traffic systems and of transport in regional and global supply chains including the reverse flow of products and materials.

The primary objective of this special issue is to reflect the sustainable development of logistics from various perspectives preferably in an integrated and holistic approach and to examine research issues concerned with quantitative analysis and decision support for supply network design, freight transport and logistics infrastructure. For this special issue eight papers from 36 submissions have been selected for publication after a thorough peer-review according to the standards of the FSM journal.
