Green Logistics – The Biggest Challenge


The Green Logistics technique is the process of managing goods and services in a way that reduces their carbon footprint and environmental impact.

Green logistics can be defined as the coordinated activities necessary to move goods or services from the point of origin to the point of consumption in a manner that minimizes environmental impacts and supports more sustainable global economic development.

The Gati Shakti National Master Plan (NMP) ensures the sustainability of the logistics industry by empowering Green Logistics.

India is one of the main participants in the emission of greenhouse gases. It’s high time we take this seriously. The logistics industry and our government are now consciously making efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. Sagarmala Program and Gati Shakti NMP are some key initiatives by the government. The government is planning to integrate 24 departments and 6 ministries into its ULIP (Unified Logistic Interface Platform) through a single window logistic platform. Its real-time visibility will enable the fulfillment of gaps in the movement of goods, reduction in costs, and easy business operations. The NMP will enable higher efficiency in the movement of goods by integrating all multimodal connectivity projects. The government has also planned to enhance the in the Northeastern part of our country by joining all state capitals through the National Highway Network by 2025.

The government is trying to promote alternate fuel and electric vehicles to promote Green Logistics. The Road Transport and Highway Minister Mr. Nitin Gadkari had said that the government is trying to reduce the price of electric vehicles to the price of petrol vehicles in India to reduce the cost spent on fossil fuels.

 The goal of green logistics is to reduce the adverse effects of goods on the environment, while also maintaining cost-effectiveness.

Here let’s discuss some ways to reduce carbon footprint, how it can be achieved and what are the benefits of doing so.

One of the ways to reduce global warming is by reducing carbon emissions. One way to do this is through green logistics. This includes changes in technology and management, as well as changes in consumer behavior.

To reduce water and air pollution, logistics companies need to minimize the use of toxic chemicals and petroleum-based products. They can also use renewable resources whenever possible, such as wind or solar power. When these resources are unavailable they should use renewable biomass fuels instead of fossil fuels like coal or oil.

There are various benefits of green logistics, one of them being reduced emissions. Logistics is one of the largest industries in terms of energy consumption and it will only keep growing.

It makes sense for companies to make their logistics more environment-friendly by applying green principles in various aspects such as driving distances, packaging, transportation facilities, etc.

Besides reducing emissions, green logistics also have a significant impact on quality of life and well-being.
