Green Logistics: Improving the Environmental Sustainability of Logistics
de Alan McKinnon, Sharon Cullinane, Michael Browne et Anthony Whiteing

Présentation de l’éditeur
As concern for the environment rises, companies must take more account of the external costs of logistics associated mainly with climate change, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents. Green Logistics provides a unique insight on the environmental aspects of logistics. Edited by a leading team of academics with contributions from global industry leaders and researchers, it examines key issues facing the logistics industry today. Fully updated and revised, the 3rd Edition introduces new contributors and insightful international case studies that illustrate the impact of green logistics in practice. It includes a new chapter about green hinterland logistics considering port and maritime issues written by Jean-Paul Rodrigue and Adolf Ng. The updated edition also includes a postscript tackling the most prevalent trends that have recently emerged onto the logistics landscape, including 3D printing. Ideal for use on related courses, it includes indispensable downloadable supporting materials as well as technical information and guidelines for teachers and lecturers. Receiving endorsement by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) is testament to the fact that Green Logistics is leading the way in current thinking on environmental logistics. This book is divided into 5 easily navigable sections. Part One assesses the environmental impact of logistics, Part Two takes a strategic perspective on green logistics, Part Three takes an operational perspective, Part Four looks at key issues in environmental logistics, and Part Five provides a public policy perspective on green logistics.

Lean Six Sigma Logistics: Strategic Development to Operational Success
de Thomas J Goldsby et Robert Martichenko

Présentation de l’éditeur
Reducing costs, rushing to market and accelerating lead times are vital for survival in today’s competitive environment. Inventory is no longer considered an asset, and strategies need to be in place to operate with minimal amounts of it.

Dynamics in Logistics
de Hans-Jarg Kreowski, Bernd Scholz-Reiter et Klaus-Dieter Thoben

Présentation de l’éditeur
The volume comprises the proceedings of the second International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics LDIC 2009. The scope of the conference was concerned with the identification, analysis, and description of the dynamics of logistic processes and networks.

The spectrum reached from the planning and modelling of processes over innovative methods like autonomous control and knowledge management to the new technologies provided by radio frequency identification, mobile communication, and networking. The growing dynamic confronts the area of logistics with completely new challenges: It must become possible to rapidly and flexibly adapt logistic processes and networks to continuously changing conditions. LDIC 2009 provided a forum for the discussion of advances in that matter.

The volume consist of the x (up to 3) invited papers and of y (about 45 to 50) contributed papers devided into various subjects including routing in dynamic logistic networks, RFID in logistics and manufacturing networks, supply chain control policies, sustainable collaboration, knowledge management and service models in logistics, container logistics, autonomous control in logistics, and logistic process modelling.

Hans-Jörg Kreowski is professor for Theoretical Computer Science at the University of Bremen and member of the Research Cluster for Dynamics in Logistics. His main research topics are graph transformation, formal modelling and their applications in computer science and logistics. He (co)-authored and (co)-edited 15 books and published more than 120 scientific papers.
