Sustainable and Resilient Logistics: Navigating Towards a Greener and More Robust Future

In an era marked by rapid global changes, the need to accelerate the transformation towards sustainable and resilient logistics systems and supply chains has never been more pressing. Adequately incorporating these dimensions poses unique challenges for logistics and supply chain management and offers many opportunities for science and practice. The collection and analysis of data to predict potential disruptions in supply chains or the need to share information between supply chain partners to understand and mitigate possible effects that products and services might have on the environment are just two examples of what these new roles entail. Both, science and practice have recognized that successfully addressing aspects such as supply chain risk management, digitalization, and sustainable supply chain management is vital for being and remaining competitive in this changing environment. HICL 2024 focuses on research concepts and ideas that reveal new opportunities and provide insights into the future of logistics and supply chain management.
