But despite ongoing sustainability initiatives in retail, more comprehensive changes are required to limit climate change and its effects. This is what John Olsson suggests, PhD student in packaging logistics at LTH, who is now defending his thesis Last-mile logistics services in retail: A consumer-centric approach.
