Abstract [en]

Purpose of this paper

To gain competitiveness in the future, logistics companies will meet more severe demands on sustainability than today, which must be met in their business models. The purpose of the paper is to develop a framework for research into sustainable business models for logistics companies. In addition, a practice-oriented goal is to encourage logistics companies to grasp a more holistic view of their environmental aspects and opportunities.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper is based on a literature review in two steps. A structured search on key words relating to business model aspects and logistics was conducted. This search was complemented by a scan of academic journals focusing logistics research. The findings were discussed and analysed regarding their environmental content.

Findings

The literature on business model aspects as well as logistics issues in general only occasionally address sustainability issues. The most important result of this paper is a research framework for sustainable business models for logistics companies.

Research limitations/implications (if applicable)

This paper deliberately takes a wide approach to the business model concept, and is a first step towards defining appropriate research tasks and to further develop a research design.

What is original/value of paper

Literature on logistics based business models exists, however it is not developed for logistics companies, which are in focus in this paper. Furthermore, environmental aspects are not addressed in that literature.
