ASSESSMENT OF LOGISTICS SUSTAINABILITY IN FAMILY FARMS BASED ON THE LSR CONCEPT

Abstract:

This paper is an assessment of sustainable logistics
in family farms based on the LSR concept. The introduction
clearly illustrates the significant contribution of logistics to
the sustainable development of farms. For the purposes of this
study, five Polish family farms were selected, located in the
Wielkopolskie voivodeship, managing arable land with an
area ranging from 32 ha to 131 ha, focused on mixed (plant
+ animal) production with various field arrangement patterns.
This study uses a measurement methodology for logistics sustainability,
addressing five key areas of LSR, i.e.: purchasing
social responsibility (PSR), sustainable transportation (ST),
sustainable packaging (SP), sustainable warehousing (SW)
and reverse logistics (RL). According to the results, there
is a weak (albeit growing) positive correlation between the
logistics sustainability level and the area of land, whether it
comes to specific main LSR processes or to social, environmental
and economic aspects.

Keywords: sustainable logistics, family farms, logistics processes, LSR concept
