Barriers to innovative logistic practices
Paper in proceedings, 2013

Innovation is not necessarily something new to the world but new to the user. Although research on logistics innovation is still in its infancy, efforts are being put on defining and identifying innovation in the logistics sector by professionals and academics worldwide. Innovative logistics practices, ILP, could be considered as a key piece of this necessary and on-going supply chain modernization. The purpose of this paper is to investigate ILP in the studied EU projects and to identify barriers for the implantation of the same. Barriers found are divided into: economic, legislative, socio-environmental and technical.
