Abstract [en]

The importance of environmental considerations when purchasing transport services is increasing on the shippers’ agenda. Our study aims at investigating to what extent shippers focus on the environmental aspects and if they follow up the demands placed. Further it is explored what attitudes the decision-makers, mainly the logistics managers, have towards different environmental measures for reducing the environmental impact of their transports. Different methods have been applied during more than ten years in our studies. As a result, this paper is a review of evidence from various studies, complementing each other.
