Freight Transport Deceleration: its possible contribution to logistics decarbonisation
Paper

McKinnon, A.C. Transport Reviews , 34, 6, 418-436 (2016)

The paper challenges the conventional view that the movement of goods through supply chains must continue to accelerate. The compression of freight transit times has been one of the most enduring logistics trends but may not be compatible with government climate change policies to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 60-80% by 2050. ...

The Consolidation of Retail Deliveries: Its Effect on CO2 Emissions
Paper

McKinnon, A.C. and Woodburn, A., Transport Policy, 1, 2, 125-136 (1994)

This was one of the first papers in the logistics literature to look specifically at effects on CO2 emissions of a major structural trend in the sector. It argued that the centralisation of retail inventory and consolidation of shops deliveries by multiple retailers was yielding a net reduction in CO2 emissions per tonne of product delivered. ...
