Abstract
This research analyzed green logistics implementation management in motor vehicle industry in Kisumu. The study analysed management support as determinant of green logistics implementation management. The target population for this study included all the employees working in the selected motor vehicle industry in Kisumu which were, CMC motors, General Motors and Subaru motors. These were the sales executive, the technicians, parts sales, the administrators and the managers. Data was collected by use of structured questionnaires that were be issued by the researcher and collected later for analysis. Multiple regression analysis was used to establish the relationship between dependent and independent variables. Descriptive analysis such as frequencies, percentages, mean and mode were used to describe the independent and dependent variable while inferential analysis was used to test relationship between management support and green logistics implementation management. The results were presented using tables and associated interpretation. The study found out that management support is a significant factor towards green logistics implementation management. It was concluded that green logistics is significantly affected by management support revealing that management of the motor vehicle industry should place more emphasis on green logistics implementation management. Management of motor vehicle industries should play a key role in ensuring that green logistics implementation management is fully realized in order to conserve our environment for sustainability. Further research should be done to establish the level of awareness of employees of motor vehicle industry on information communication technology, organizations environmental policy and economic benefits resulting from green logistics implementation management.
