Energy consumption is also a major issue with regard to logistics barriers to trade within the European Union. This is once concern that is shared by the members of the European Union more than the firms and businesses that wish to establish a business across the European Union or are already engaged in one across the European Union. Logistics operations require that energy is used in manners that lead to the emission of noise, pollution and greenhouse gases into the environment that can cause damage to the environment. The carriage of goods has to utilize fuel and has to eventually contribute to the addition of harmful residuals into the environment (Aronsson and Brodin). In light of this fact, the European Union commission is seeking to develop Green Corridors of trade that can be used more frequently in light of the decreased impact that their utilization will have upon the environment and its more sensitive constituents.In a study into the logistics barriers to trade, a research published in the International Journal of Physical Distribution & Logistics Management in 2003, the logistics trade barriers that exist in Europe and Asia were critically analyzed in order to come to a set of conclusions that could facilitate the establishment of a set of pros and cons that could be considered to be an outline that has to be essentially present in order for a logistics framework to be successful in obtaining the results required (Bookbinder and Tan).
