The course investigates different aspects of logistics considering sustainable and environmental issues. We will focus on quantitative models and methods in order to build a more efficient and “greener” system ranging from strategic considerations, such as network planning, to operational decisions, such as routing.

Learning outcomes

After this course the students will be able

  • To analyse and apply quantitative methods to various problems arising in sustainable logistics
  • To elaborate and discuss practical examples in groups
  • To critically evaluate scientific papers
