Empty transport resources (ETRs) are responsible for a significant amount of redundant costs and pollution in various branches of transportation. Empty resources are therefore seen as a major issue on the way to economic success and environmental sustainability in the transportation industry. Different applications illustrating the sustainability impact of ETR models are presented. Elaborating common properties and methods, we establish a framework for modeling and solving related problems.
