Previous studies have proposed a dynamic configuration method for two-layered supply chains consisting of a set of clients and suppliers. The proposed method provides suitable delivery times and prices of products through the modification process of production schedules of the suppliers and the negotiation process between the clients and the suppliers in consideration of transportation constraints. This research proposes a new supply chain model extended for carbon dioxide emissions reductions in the two-layered dynamic supply chains. The suppliers provide transportation plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in transportation processes without losing chances to enter into a large number contracts with the clients. The effectiveness of the proposed model is verified through computational experiments from the viewpoints of both the amount of carbon dioxide emitted in transportation processes and the profits of the suppliers.
