Should your company decrease its logistics and supply chain management spending for higher profits? - Press Release

Sustainable Logistics and Supply Chain Management (9780749478278)15th March 2017: Sustainable Logistics and Supply Chain Management: Principles and Practices for Sustainable Operations and Management 

Professor of Logistics at Hull University Business School and author David B. Grant states that any cuts in logistics and supply chain management (SCM) can have wider repercussions to the environment. Across nations and sectors, the millions spent in logistics and SCM are allocated to reduce the use of natural resources and carbon emissions. Any cuts in spending could have an impact on the environment, in addition to causing a break in the supply chain that could affect customers, reputations and profits.

To be knowledgeable of the repercussions of the supply chain, supply chain and logistics managers need to know the principles and practices of sustainable logistics operations. After understanding the fundamentals of green supply and logistics management, managers will place their supply chain and their company in the bigger landscape of sustainability.

The second edition of the best-selling Sustainable Logistics and Supply Chain Management: Principles and Practices for Sustainable Operations and Management publishing on 3 April, 2017, provides a comprehensive guide to the principles and practices of sustainable logistics operations and responsible management of the entire supply chain. Written by a team of leading academics, this book covers the whole scope of sustainable logistics.

Dr. Dale S. Rogers, Professor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management at Arizona State University, provided advanced praise for the book, calling it ‘a great reference for both practitioners and academics who are trying to move toward operating sustainable supply chains.’ Also at Arizona State University, Dr. Craig R. Carter, Professor of Supply Chain Management, stated that the book ‘is an excellent overview of sustainable supply chain management.’
