Global warming and increasing pollution are a growing concern across the world. With increased globalization and worldwide trading, supply chains have become longer and more complex. The multimodal transport activities of the logistics service providers (LSPs) contribute significantly to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With governments and regulatory bodies tightening the laws on GHG emissions, the LSPs are compelled to act.
TCS and Forrester Research discuss green logistics, its impact on the LSPs, and the initiatives and solutions that could be considered to address those challenges and make transportation greener.
