The Fourth industrial revolution is uncovering a series of disruptive changes in both business models and their supporting production chains. Logistics, an elementary component of these processes, is unavoidably impacted by such significant changes. This fourth revolution is characterised by its speed, magnitude and depth. Consequently, future logistics systems must aim for interconnected information and optimised time and resources, with considerable investment in development and innovation to maintain competitiveness. Current challenges in modern logistics systems, and urban logistics in particular, include the following:

  • Innovative solutions in logistics have changed the way goods are transported and delivered. The industry is witnessing many new solutions focused on unique value-added services, which are disrupting the overall supply chain ecosystem. In the future urban logistics will be dominated by connected, shared, autonomous, and electric solutions. For instance, emerging technologies such as IoT, Big Data, predictive analytics, cloud computing, crowd-sourcing platforms and connected devices will be deeply present in logistics;
  • Expansion of urbanisation will require unique city logistics solutions that are expected to open up avenues for smart and integrated logistics solutions;
  • The urban landscape will also require suitable IT solutions with a higher focus on cloud services and vehicle-to-vehicle technologies that will allow providers to effectively manage load factors, improve fuel efficiency and deliver better economies of scale;
  • Logistics 4.0 is characterised by the optimisation of time and resources, chain traceability, security and integrity of data and suitable interoperability between different human and digital actors. This digital ecosystem also facilitates innovation and the creation of new knowledge-based services and business models that foster a more socially and environmentally sustainable trade.
