A sustainable management framework for dilemma and boundaries in autonomous cooperating transport logistics processes
In our modern societies, transport logistics processes and systems seem to have reached their limits for expansion. The effects of transport logistics on the environment and human health contribute to major problems. This situation calls for new approaches for transport logistics and for managing sustainability. In this paper, we pick up the technological innovation of 'Autonomous Logistics Processes', (ALPs) an emerging paradigm using the idea of self-organisation for complex and dynamic logistic systems. The problems of this paradigm are discussed for a management with dilemma and boundaries, which we integrate into a sustainable management framework.
