Sustainable logistics: How to deliver “fast” and “green” in last-mile delivery by Josué Velázquez Martínez
Urbanisation and e-commerce growth (omni-channel) will increase transportation movements in the years to come. The challenge many companies face is how to deliver products fast and keep high utilisation and low fuel consumption (CO2 emissions). In this presentation, Prof. Velázquez Martínez will discuss the new trends in logistics sustainability that provide ideas to optimise the last-mile delivery by using technology and data analytics, and how companies can drive consumer behaviour via the use of environmental impacts during e-commerce.

The green energy supply chain by Nils Löhndorf
Industry is increasingly turning towards renewable energies to decrease its carbon footprint and protect itself from commodity price fluctuations. This presentation explores the risks and benefits associated with procurement and production of renewables to satisfy industrial power consumption as well as opportunities and threats of demand response in industrial production.
Master students at the LCL prepare a one-slide poster of project and deliver pitch.

Measuring supply chain resilience by Anne Lange
Recent catastrophic events, such as the Japan earthquake or Thailand floods, have dramatically affected companies worldwide. In modern complex supply chains, such events can brew problems in unpredicted ways. Can we improve the resilience of such complex supply chains? Analysing their structure allows to identify critical locations in the supply chains – and prevention can then be taken from there. This talk presents metrics that build on the structure of the logistics network. It will show how these metrics identify critical production sites or suppliers. In doing so, the metrics provide knowledge on the resilience of a supply chain without requiring extensive simulation. Hence, the metrics support companies in supply chain risk management.
