The 24th International Symposium on Logistics (ISL 2019): Supply Chain Networks vs Platforms: Innovations, Challenges and Opportunities Würzburg, Germany, 14th – 17th July 2019


The increasing logistics and transport activities in the city significantly impact on the environment we live in. Providing green and sustainable logistics services is at the top of the logistics service provider’s agenda. Both academics and industry have shown increasing attention to measuring sustainability in logistics operations in the recent decade, yet LSPs' sustainability performance measurement methods and relevant indicators need to be assessed and updated particularly in the context of city logistics. This paper identifies and evaluates the current frameworks and indicators that reflect the performance of LSPs’ environmental sustainability using a systematic literature review. A total of 61 papers dating from 2010 - 2018 were selected and analysed in detail. A conceptual framework was proposed to assess environmental sustainability in city logistics.
