Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport är en slutredovisning för det Vinnova finansierade utvecklingsprojektet ”Affärsmodell för logistiksystem för överskottslivsmedel - På väg mot en cirkulär ekonomi för matsvinn”. Projektet genomfördes från oktober 2017 till augusti 2018 i samarbete mellan Stockholms Stadsmission, Linköpings universitet och Bring Frigo.

Syftet med detta projekt har varit att framta koncept och affärsmodell för ett nationellt logistiksystem för redistribution av funktionellt livsmedelssvinn. Utvecklingen har skett i nära dialog med systemets användare: sociala organisationer, livsmedelsbranschen och transportsektorn. En affärsmodell är en förutsättning för att möjliggöra långsiktig hållbarhet för en storskalig och effektiv lösning för överskottslivsmedel i Sverige.

Vi vill rikta ett stort tack till alla de företag och organisationer som under projektets gång bidragit med input och feedback: Aon, Arla, Arvid Nordquist, Atria, Axfood, Bergendahls, Brave Business 2030, Coop, CSCMP, Elvenite, Findus, Food2Change, Frälsningsarmén, GS1, Hela Människan, Know IT, Kronfågel, Lantmännen, Länsförsäkringar, Lidl, Martin & Servera, Menigo, Polar Cape, PostNord, Räddningsmissionen, PwC, Svensk Dagligvaruhandel, Svenska Retursystem, Sveriges Stadsmissioner, Värmestugan Helsingborg och Unilever. Vidare vill vi tacka forskare och examensarbetare vid Linköpings Universitet som medverkat inom ramen för projektet och som bl.a. medverkat vid arbetsmöten, stöttat med kunskap kring uppbyggnad av affärsmodeller, samt hjälpt till i framtagande av olika former av information. Vi vill också tacka anställda inom Stockholms Stadsmission som har bidragit med information och kunskap om befintlig redistribution, kommunikations stöd, inputs på möten och workshops samt praktiskt hjälp i samband med dessa.

Abstract [sv]

För att möta trender såsom ökad internationell konkurrens måste framtida transportsystem inte bara vara ekonomiskt utan även socialt och miljömässigt hållbara. CSR-arbetet måste lyftas till en affärsmässighet där hållbara transportsatsningar blir en integrerad del av affärsutvecklingen och stödjer näringslivets långsiktiga och hållbara konkurrenskraft. För detta krävs nytänkande och innovationskraft. Kunskapen kring hur CSR-arbete kan göras företagsekonomiskt intressant är starkt begränsad. Det saknas kunskap kring hur företagsekonomiskt intressanta tjänster och processer kan utformas som stödjer en utveckling mot satta transportpolitiska mål och miljömål, och som stöds av mätning och uppföljning.

Fokus i detta projekt har legat på att identifiera, beskriva och analysera innovationer som kan medföra att transportrelaterat CSR-arbete ger effektivare verksamheter och/eller kundservice. Transportutövare och transportköpare (här handelsföretag) har fokuserats. Handelsföretag kan i sin roll som länk mellan kunder och producenter och med sin ofta starka förhandlingskraft påverka CSR-arbetet även utanför företagsgränserna. De stora potentialer som finns i gränssnitten mellan transportsystemets aktörer har därmed lyfts fram.

Abstract [en]

Abstract Although urban consolidation centres (UCC) worldwide have improved urban freight distribution and reduced externalities, other UCC initiatives have not materialised due to problems such as for example, business model limitations. All the same, researchers have rarely described business model components relevant to city logistics. In response, the purpose of this article is to analyse critical factors for viable business models of city logistics initiatives involving UCCs. Following an extensive literature review and multiple-case study of five initiatives with UCCs, we identified seven critical factors of viable city logistics business models: the ability to scale up and down the UCC solution; an ability to continuously develop and adapt to a dynamic environment; the important entrepreneurial role of the initiator as well; the acknowledgment of society; ability to innovate new services; logistics and supply chain management competence; and the ability to take full advantage of advanced IT. All seven factors describe continuously redeveloped business models seeking to seize new and unexpected opportunities, yet also indicate that city logistics systems require local authorities and municipalities to act as initiators, enablers, and customers. The models also underscore differences between purely commercial and purely municipal city logistics initiatives.

Abstract [en]

The emerging awareness of climate threats and other environmentally related problems creates challenges for logistics. Greening logistics introduces various avenues to understand and improve logistics systems from an environmental perspective. Freight transport is part of, as well as a consequence of, the logistics 
system, where the environmental challenges cannot, and should not, be met at the cost of efficiency and competitiveness. During the last decade, research into green logistics has expanded and matured dramatically. From being in the outskirts of the logistics field, environmental considerations have become a more natural part of logistics research. This book provides examples of research performed by Swedish PhD students, and illuminates parts of the multifaceted area of green logistics research. The PhD students have each contributed with one chapter, in which they present their research in their own words. Greening logistics is aimed at various audiences: for students and teachers in universities and professional programmes – to facilitate the understanding of a complex, important, and emerging area; for business – to demonstrate green logistics’ important role, and provide inspiration and guidance for further development; for funding bodies – to demonstrate the strength of a joint funding initiative: the development of research competence at various universities; and for researchers – as inspiration and introduction to the area of green logistics.

Abstract [en]

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore and illustrate ways in which the world’s largest retailers describe their logistics-related environmental considerations, their environmental indicators applied to measure the effects of these considerations and their environmental consciousness in their CSR reports.

Design/methodology/approach – Classification models are developed via a literature review on logistics-related environmental considerations, indicators and consciousness. A content analysis approach is then applied to examine CSR reports from 12 of the world’s largest retailers.

Findings – Few retailers show environmental considerations in all logistics activities, but purchasing is especially well described. Even if many retailers claim to use the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework, no one uses is completely. Judging consciousness from CSR reports raised a number of questions.

Research limitations/implications – A contribution to theory is the development of two classification models. The first provides a description structure for environmental considerations related to logistics activities. The second expands the GRI indicator framework by incorporating a structure for logistics activities.

Practical implications – The classification models developed can be an important mean for managers and also consumers to judge the environmental sustainability of retailers by their CSR reports.

Social implications – The study makes a social contribution with its input on sustainability and especially environmental issues.

Originality/value – Few studies have focused upon environmentally sustainable logistics in retail chains, and even fewer address how to measure environmental sustainability in this context.
