JITI 2009 Seminar on Sustainable Logistics
What are economically feasible solutions for environmentally-friendly logistics?

December 3, 2009

Washington Marriott at Metro Center
775 12th Street, N.W. Washington, DC

As the new U.S. administration has stated, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is an urgent need of the nation. The transportation sector which produces about 30% of the national total CO2 emissions can respond to this issue by setting up environmentally-friendly business practices. Significant opportunities may exist in logistics and the supply chain such as the improvement of efficiency of transporting goods and more effective logistics management by promoting modal shifts and educating truck drivers on ecological driving.

This seminar explores the possibility of managing efficiency and environmentally friendliness in logistics through keynote speeches and a panel discussion involving experts from the U.S. and Japan. Through discussions of best practices in both countries, the seminar will seek economically feasible solutions that can have the greatest environmental benefits. As cooperation among each party related to the supply chain is necessary, viewpoints will be given from various parties including carriers, shippers, manufacturers, and the government.
