Logistics encompasses "the complete planning, control, coordination, implementation and checks of all internal and cross-company flow of information and goods." The networking and digitisation of logistical processes for optimizing value chains is no longer a vision of the future. Intelligent and digitally networked systems allow people, machines, plants, logistics and products to communicate and cooperate directly with each other... now.
This growing link between the digital and real world or more so the interaction between logistics and computer science goes far beyond the pure function of optimisation. This makes Logistics 4.0 the most important discipline in the practical implementation of individual logistical processes through the use of software, which is essentially the key to smooth, transparent and efficient processes!
