The purpose of this paper is to identify the roles of government in promoting halal logistics.
This paper applied a systematic literature review (SLR) technique to assess published halal logistics academic literature.
The review identified six roles, namely, regulation, financial incentives, taxation, infrastructure, guidance and encouragement and education and labour supply.
This systematic review paper is considered amongst the first to attempt to consolidate the dispersed halal logistics literature and to systematically accentuate the pivotal role of government in the halal logistics industry.
The authors would like to thank the Editor and Reviewers for the constructive feedback. The authors also wish to thank Dr Izma Abdul Zani for the helpful suggestions on an earlier version of the paper. A heartfelt appreciation to the authors’ spouses for their continuous support throughout the pandemic quarantine period, which made the presentation of this paper possible.
