Abstract


This article presents a systematic literature review, whose main objective is to identify the concepts of green logistics, sustainable logistics and low carbon logistics and to point out the peculiarities, similarities and/or differences among them. As secondary objectives, this article sought to identify other terms associated with similar practices to the ones represented by the discussed terms. We conclude that low carbon logistics has a more limited scope, considering only CO2 reduction, while green logistics extends this scope, including other environmental aspects and sustainable logistics is the most comprehensive concept, but the least explored by researchers.

Author Keywords: green logistics, sustainable logistics, low carbon logistics, systematic literature review and freight transport.
