Sustainable Transportation and Smart Logistics: Decision-Making Models and Solutions provides deterministic and probabilistic models for transportation logistics problem-solving and decision-making. The book begins with an overview of the intersections between sustainability, transportation, and logistics, but then delves into the current problems associated with the implementation of sustainable transportation and smart logistics in urban settings. Models for addressing complex structural problems, procedures for estimating transportation externalities, such as environmental and social impacts, both in industrial and government arenas, are also included, as are decision-making models from operational, tactical, and strategic management perspectives. Final sections cover best practices for practical corporate policy implementation.
- Examines all modes of transportation
