Press release

Ressource efficiency is one of the most important topics of the logistics of manufacturing companies in the near future. Increasing costs for energy and resources force companies to manufacture ecologically. The aim of this project is therefore the depiction of the connections between ecology and logistics (procurement, production, distribution) in holistic models in order to identify interactions and to derive improvements for both sectors (logistics and ecology). The results of the research project are intended to enable companies to influence the ecology and logistics performance in a targeted manner. Furthermore, the companies shall be empowered to implement ecological and logistical improvements on their own.
