Part of the Lecture Notes in Logistics book series (LNLO)

Abstract

Common characteristics of all logistics processes are individuality and dynamically changing requirements of the customers’ business. Cloud computing enables new business models to provide highly individual IT services that fit the needs of logistics customers. After outlining logistics specific cloud service requirements and the results of a study about the acceptance of cloud computing in logistics domain this paper presents the Logistics Mall, an approach for a domain specific cloud platform for the trading and usage of logistics IT services and logistics processes.
