Abstract: The increasing demand for temperature-controlled products (pharmaceuticals / food) leads to increased energy demand in the logistics sector and to increasing greenhouse gas emissions. Even though there exist efforts to increase energy efficiency in logistics, they are mostly isolated solutions emphasising drive technologies or technological possibilities in building infrastructure. These isolated solutions will not be enough to achieve the climate targets. The paper provides insights into the development of a simulation and design model for a logistics system, which serves as a planning tool and as basis for decision-making for design options for energy autonomy. Different options for transport, cooling of the products during transport, storage and distribution with regards to CO2-equivalent emissions and costs are incorporated. In this way, different scenarios are modelled as basis for qualified decisions for the design of an energy autonomous logistics system.
