Sustainable Food Logistics

Track Coordinators: Jack Crielaard (Wageningen University - Management Studies). 

Environmental and social issues are increasingly rising up the global agenda, these include water scarcity, population growth, climate change, energy, pollution, health and safety. Consumers want affordable food but the issues of environmental and social responsibility, which adds enormous complexity to decision making, have increased in importance. Business have to respond to this. What is needed is a way for businesses to make decisions that balance the financial drivers with the potential costs of mitigating against longer term environmental and social externalities. Logistics operations in supply chains can be planned and executed in a significantly more sustainable fashion with increased collaboration between firms acting along a supply chain. Papers that contribute to a better understanding of sustainability practices in agri-food logistics are invited for this track. We welcome all kinds of research methods ranging from literature reviews, quantitative modelling, case study to survey research.
