As concern for the environment rises, companies must take more account of the external costs of logistics associated mainly with climate change, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents. Green Logistics analyzes the environmental consequences of logistics and how to deal with them. Speaking to company managers and policy makers around the world, McKinnon and his co-editors compile 17 contributions from leading experts that examine the environmental consequences of the logistics relating to the transport, storage, and handling of products as they move from source to sale. The focus is achieving a more sustainable balance between economic, environmental, and social objectives. It examines key areas in this important subject including: 

-carbon auditing of supply chains 
-transferring freight to greener transport modes 
-reducing the environmental impact of warehousing 
-improving fuel efficiency in freight transport -making city logistics more environmentally sustainable 
-reverse logistics for the management of waste 
-the role of the government in promoting sustainable logistics 

The second edition adds new case studies and has been fully updated with new content on freight transport, warehousing, vehicle utilization and the impact of ecommerce.
