E-commerce has developed rapidly in recent years. Many services and applications integrate IOT technologies are offered. Logistics is a representative application which focuses on rapid delivery, integrity of goods, and the privacy of personal information. This study surveys logistics environment and lists security requirements of past scheme. The goal of this study ensures these security issues should be considered in logistics applications. It will make people conversant with the basic environment and needs of logistics system.
