Abstract

The aim of this paper is to design a sustainable logistics platform concept based on different applications of global airport logistics platforms and industrial ecology principles. This concept has been developed for a southern Brazilian application [Campinas Metropolitan Region, São Paulo state]. The design guidelines establish a balance between the logistics activities and the environmental constraints on business viability.
