1. Sustainability

With increased awareness that electricity and transportation are large contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, green logistics has gained significant traction over the years, with many organisations looking to advanced energy management systems and electric and solar powered vehicles to lower their overall carbon footprint. 

In addition to these solutions, many organisations are beginning to look at climate-smart supply chain planning in supply chain management (SCM), due to the effect climate change has on the availability of materials and resources. Aside from preserving the environment, those that adopt sustainable solutions stand to gain from higher profit and customer loyalty, with 60% of customers happy to pay a premium for sustainable products.
