Investigation of Green Logistics Strategies: A Case Study in Indian Context

Nawdeep Maurya, Varun Singh and Venkateswara Rao Komma


The production, transportation, storage, and consumption of goods have all increased significantly as a result of globalisation. However, there is a negative impact on the environment as a result of increased traffic and logistics. With a staggering contribution of almost two-thirds of the total, the transportation sector is the main source of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Concept of logistics, solely focused on the economy, business, and door-to-door service, cannot be practised any longer. Instead, it is necessary to account for the effect on the environment while integrating them with the cost and time and this leads to the inception of term green logistics. Green logistics refers to the strategies and policies to make logistics more sustainable and to find a balance between ecology and economy. This paper presents different strategies of green logistics and a case study of transporting agricultural products in Prayagraj district with green supply chain perspective. Mathematical regression equations were developed for CO2, N2O, and CH4 emissions and results were validated with an environment performance calculator. A comparative analysis has been carried out to demonstrate that emissions can be reduced significantly by modal split, and it is advised to use lesser number of bigger vehicle than large number of smaller vehicles.
