Abstract

In many cases, the focus of sustainable supply chain management literature is on production processes or network design decisions. Transport processes are often only accounted for in a rather simplified way and are rarely analysed on a high level of detail. Thereby, the actual impact of transport processes on the economic and environmental performance of companies is distorted and its potential for improvements is ignored. This work focuses exclusively on the detailed analysis of transport processes in a supply chain under vendor-managed inventory. We propose an inventory routing model that is extended to incorporate environmental aspects and apply the model to a case study from the European petrochemical industry. The results obtained from the analysis are then compared to a situation where no collaboration in a supply chain exists in order to show the positive impacts of collaboration on economic as well as on environmental sustainability.
