Adaptive logistics: preparing logistical systems for climate change

This paper outlines what is likely to become a major new field of logistics research, focusing on the adaptation of logistical systems and supply chains to climate change. This research will essentially reverse the traditional causality of green logistics research, which examines the effects of logistical activities on the environment, to consider how logistics will have to be modified in response to the effects of climate change. The paper discusses five key areas of research that will require investigation, in each case reviewing relevant literature. It highlights the difficulty of conducting research in this field when the nature and scale of climatic / ecological change is highly uncertain and its geographical impact highly variable. It argues that adaptive logistics should focus on five key themes and uses secondary data drawn from various sources to demonstrate their importance.
