Abstract

The Industry 4.0 concept is becoming increasingly popular. It gives the possibility of gaining a competitive advantage for the countries of the European Union. The transport/forwarding/logistics sector can be regarded as a leader in the evolution of the Industry 4.0 platform, because the automation of logistics has been a trend for several years now. More and more new technologies are being used based on the rapid acquisition and processing of data for warehouse management, freight transport (such as autonomous vehicles) and radio identification. In this situation, there is a strong need to develop new solutions and tools under Logistics 4.0.This article attempts to identify and describe the key challenges and future prospects for logistics that will need to be addressed to implement the Industry 4.0 platform.

Keywords: Industry 4.0, automation of logistics, Logistics 4.0, network
