We are interested in recent research advances in improving the sustainability of transport and logistics activities, ranging from the supply of raw materials to the transformation processes, storage, packaging, distribution and/or management of products at the end of their lifecycle. 

Main, but not exclusive, subjects to be:

· The formalization of new trends and challenges in logistics and transport, including supply chain management, involving one or several sustainability dimensions.

· The definition of new optimization indicators, criteria and metrics for sustainability assessment and optimization.

· Modeling, optimisation methods (operations research, simulation and artificial intelligence), decision support methods in a multi-objective context, or sustainability practices (collaboration, mutualization, intermodality/multimodality, etc.).

The deadline for paper submission is 13 November 2023, but you can submit your paper earlier if you wish, as papers will be published on an ongoing basis.
