2002; Finnveden et al. 2009). Dagran (2011) has shown that a different way of packaging concentrated fruit juices will not only result in a reduction in transported containers or in energy spend on cooling, but also in less energy used on making and recycling the actual package itself. We found the initiator of innovations to be either coming from inside its own company or coming from a link closely connected to the organization.

Jonrinaldi and Zhang (2013) presented the proposal of the model of the integration of products and stocks with regards to backward logistics in a finite time period. Total costs of functioning of the supply chain (of each part among mentioned below) are the aim function of this model. The model assumes the existence of a supply chain of 6-level structure. The described model was used by authors to inspect the influence of the coordination of the production process with stocks in conditions of the supply chain performing both forward (from producer to client) and backward (from client to producer) goods’ flow on total costs of functioning of such supply chain.

But for very long hauls—500 km or more—this could be a possible, interesting alternative for road transportation. Another form of alteration strategy often employed for achieving a more sustainable physical distribution is the use of alternative fuels. These fuels could be either (a) cleaner—producing less CO2—or (b) renewable energy sources. Both will be explained below: 38 R. Pieters et al. (a) Using cleaner fuels. An easy way to change to fuel that is less polluting is to use mineral oils, which will generate less CO2, or change to alternative fuels like electricity or fuel made from agrifood products: biofuel (Holden and Gilpin 2013).
