The research on green logistic network planning in manufacturing workshopsAuthor(s): Wang Dong
As it involves many logistic activities, manufacturing workshops usually have higher logistic costs. The traditional logistic networks of manufacturing workshops normally pursue cost minimization while ignoring environmental protection. In the modern era filled with green logistic concepts, it is essential to transform traditional logistic networks in manufacturing workshops into a green logistic network with the characteristics of high economic benefit, full resource utilization and environmental protection. This paper analyzed the way to build green manufacturing logistic networks through adding recycle points and redesigning traditional logistic networks. Finally, it provided an example on how to set up greener logistic networks in manufacturing shops with concrete analysis and adopted heuristic algorithm to find out the best design solution.
