Keynote abstract :

Nowadays companies are facing increasing challenges to balance business performance and economic gains with increasing regulatory legislation for GHG emissions and societal impact (noise, accidents, congestion, etc.). They have to adopt new concepts and make the most of technological advances in their efforts to offer cost efficient, sustainable customer service. To support these companies in doing so, various decision-making issues for supply chains and logistics such as inventory control, distribution planning and routing need to be tackled in a sustainable and collaborative way.

A collaborative decision-making framework for sustainable supply chain planning will be presented. This framework facilitates the development of multi-party collaborative relationships across a network to improve the sustainability of delivered products. Moreover it proposes simultaneously collaboration and sustainability functionalities missing in many existing supply chain planning systems. This system has been evaluated and validated through a pilot program across a range of food supply networks. The work is motivated and applied by a major European research program in the agri-food supply chain.
