Materials and Methods: In this context, the relationship between green logistics practices and logistics performance was examined in the sample in which the research was conducted; Differences in socio-demographic factors such as gender, age and marital status of the participants participating in the research regarding green logistics practices were investigated. In the analysis of the data, descriptive statistical methods, correlation analysis, independent samples t test and one-way analysis of variance were used. The data were analyzed using the SPSS 23.0 program.
Results: In the research, a relationship was found between green logistics practices and logistics performance. It has been determined that green logistics practices differ according to the socio-demographic characteristics of the participants, their gender, age and educational status.
Conclusions: In the study, the relationship between green logistics practices and logistics performance; It has been shown that there will be increases in logistics performance thanks to the green logistics practices of states, national and international organizations.
