Abstract [en]

Due to a growing environmental concern, and in specific climate-related problems, the environmental side of logistics is receiving an increasing attention. Logistics systems influence the environment in many ways; in its structural design, its planning and its operation. The paper aims at describing changes in the logistical concept, which can be defined as structural, and discusses how these changes can influence the environment. A tentative model is presented to illustrate how decisions at a structural level both create opportunities and set limitations for decisions made at a tactical and operative level. Further, four case studies in Swedish companies are presented to illustrate how changes, or thought of changes, on a structural level effect the environment. The results indicate that it should be possible to consider environmental issues in the same manner as time and cost upon evaluating a logistics system or structure. Furthermore, the cases indicate that changes on a structural level can influence all parameters, i.e. time, cost and environment, positively.
