Abstract

The fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) sets new challenges not only for the development of manufacturing processes but also for logistics processes and supply chains. Logistics in the fourth industrial revolution (Logistics 4.0) focuses on increased integration of enterprises within open supply chains, development of IT systems supporting management and control processes and automation of logistics processes. Point elements of logistics infrastructure requires adaptation to the changing significant parameters of the supply chain, the size of the material flows associated with the development of omnichannel sales and changes in the labour market. Commonly used solutions - financial analysis and indicator assessment - are used to assess operational activity and have limited effectiveness in diagnosing incompatibilities within logistics system and recommending improvements to changes in supply chains. The key success factor is the development of an effective method of evaluation of the logistics system operating within open supply chain, which will allow identifying areas of incompatibilities and propose solutions to increase the operational efficiency and economic effectiveness of the supply chain in accordance with the Logistics 4.0 concept. The authors of the article will present the author's method of Logistics Audit 9A and its use to assess the efficiency of the entire supply chain and its compliance with the Logistics 4.0 concept and will present the results of the study of three companies operating in one industry that have implemented different logistics solutions over a period of three years.

Keywords: Industry 4.0, supply chain, warehousing, automation, omnichannel
