Sustainable logistics concepts mainly focus on strategic decision levels for example in supply chain design, warehouse location and standard transport mode selection decisions. This paper is addressing a more operative approach and analyzing green concepts for day-to-day logistics decisions, commonly discussed as supply chain event management concepts in order to speed up and improve such decisions e.g. by semi-automated software and decision systems. As the authors show in such automated operative decisions systems a green approach at least in information providing has to be discussed and can bring huge benefits for sustainable logistics in practice. As decisions will include provided information about environmental impacts operative logistics solutions are assumed to be more environmentally friendly than before.
