Circular Business Model Maturation in Logistics
Questions that this project will answer are:
- What challenges and opportunities are there for my firm in the transition?
- How to use circular economy principles in developing a sustainable value proposition?
- How can we support our customers with product lifecycle management services?
In this project we develop decision support models that help firms in their progress to higher maturity levels from different perspectives such as forward and reverse logistics as well as the improvement of the valorisation of return flows and waste streams in relation to a firm’s internal logistics.
01 May 2020 - 31 December 2021
Four work packages are developed that are structured around the diagnostic and prescriptive stages of progressing from current maturity levels to the next.
The first work package focuses on maturity levels and capabilities of circular business models. The second and third work packages study forward and reverse logistics. The fourth work package looks at the internal logistical processes related to return flows.
