Sustainable development in business models of logistics providers
AbstractThe current super dynamic and ultra-competitive market requires logistics service providers to innovate in order to improve their competitive edge. Looking at their efforts a trend emerges of businesses putting their weight behind finding areas which could give them long-term competitive advantage. Some of them foresaw sustainable development as the concept of the future. This paper sets out to address the question "does implementation of and practices consistent with the concept of sustainable business translate to competitive advantage of logistics service providers." This question is addressed with help of real-life cases of logistics companies.
