Abstract. Sustainability, the consideration of environmental factors and social aspects, in supply chain management (SCM) has become a highly relevant topic for researchers and practitioners. This document is based on environmental protection; it details the main features of sustainable supply chain. It presents supporting tools of collaboration in sustainable supply chains. The main examined areas: system identification, order picking, inventory control systems, city logistics, intermodal logistics processes, routing, and logistics processes of earthwork. The tools: neural network, simulation, genetic algorithm, ant colony algorithm. The paper is structured as follows: First chapter defines sustainability and Sustainable Supply Chain (SSC). The second chapter presents supporting tools of collaboration in sustainable supply chains.
