Drivers and barriers to innovative logistics practices
Paper i proceeding, 2013

“Business as usual” way of practicing could be summed as energy intensive, inflexible mono-modality, often structured in a straight push flow that usually generates itself large amounts of production waste. In opposition to this “business as usual” definition, innovative practices are found. 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 drivers and barriers for the implantation of the same.
