Hopman, M. Spreen, J.S. Publication year 2020 Abstract Transport and logistics is one of the most important economic sectors contributing to the climate change. By the nature of transport and logistics operations, the sector is one of the most difficult ones to decarbonize. This paper proposes using carbon footprinting tools to optimize logistics operations with respect to emissions, and to setup government-led emission norms for the transport and logistics sector. Carbon footprinting can be used for operational decision making, such as those envisioned by the concept of physical internet, as well as in the classical operations research centralized optimization. The paper shows conceptually how carbon footprinting indicators are applicable for the traditional logistics optimization and for the decentralized optimization of operations. The governments can further speed up the process by setting emission norms for the transport and logistics. This paper shows that the carbon footprinting methods provide sufficient input for both logistics optimization and the norms. The carbon footprinting indicators are discussed and incorporated into the mathematical formulations of logistics optimization; the same carbon footprinting data is used for the setup of carbon emission norms in logistics.
