What is it about?

Transforming toward a circular economy (CE) is a viable strategy for achieving sustainable logistics systems. However, it is still unclear how this transformation should be approached. This study explores how the logistics sector incorporates sustainability practices toward this transformation.

Why is it important?

We identified 47 sustainable logistics practices and how they create economic, environmental, and social value for a CE from three key categories; environmental preservation, dynamic capabilities, and social wellbeing. This study provides a practical contribution to strategy implementation on CE transformation. In particular, the study helps Logistics companies to decide on their sustainable logistics practices toward CE in line with their strategic priorities.


It is a great pleasure to write this article as a co-author as I have had an opportunity to interview managerial people from the logistics sector in different countries. I believe this article makes a great contribution to the knowledge of CE transformation from both theory and practice.
