Abstract

Logistic transportation works is considered the main pollutant for the environment, with over 25 per cent CO2 emissions in the EU. This situation has raised concerns for the EU and governments to find solutions and impose regulations to diminish the environmental impact. The purpose of this paper is to investigate two questions regarding environmental issues connected to transportation; “What are the recent trends for establishing sustainable logistics for different transportation methods?” “Which alternatives can be incentivized to decrease the environmental impact of transportation activities?” These projects among the most noteworthy environmental benefits, which are also the case studies of this research are The Viking Concept, The WestMed Bridge, Scandinavian Shuttle and Baxter Inland Sea Transport. The result highlighted in this research is that shifting transportation modes has been successfully implemented, with considerable positive outcomes in terms of environment impact, cost and lead times in several European Union funded projects.
