Logistics is about delivering the right good with the right quantity and right quality at the right time at the right place and in the right condition and at right price. Every step in the production and transit process presents challenges that can make or break a supply chain.
In a dynamically changing and uncertain logistic environment, fulfilling these requirements is getting more and more difficult. Flexibility, adaptability, proactivity and self-organization gain importance and can only be achieved by integration of new intelligent technologies.
Logistics 4.0 has a massive untapped potential. It leverages on edge computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) to yield real-time automated, sense-and-respond feedback mechanisms. With this technology you can establish a highly responsive supply chain that can self monitor and self adapt. A digitized supply chain improves customer service and increases efficiency giving the organization a competitive advantage.
