Abstract: In optimizing the greenness of supply chains, greenhouse gas reduction for transportation and warehousing play a substantial role. This paper highlights that most of the research is conducted on the transportation side and that research and optimization models are lacking on warehouse operations. However, the latter should be studied in order to get the complete picture of the greenness potential of supply chain logistics. Furthermore, this paper aims at positioning the issue of greenhouse gas reduction in logistics within the broader context of sustainability and sustainable supply chain management.
