Abstract

Along with Industry 4.0, which was first outlined at the Hannover Expo in 2011, work–life balance has gone under a major transformation. With the 4th industrial revolution, new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, 3D printers and the Internet of Things started to take greater prominence in the world of business. One of the sectors affected by the process that started with Industry 4.0 is logistics. For that reason, a concept called Logistics 4.0 has emerged. The concept of Logistics 4.0 denotes a process that causes an increase in efficiency and a decrease in the costs of automation. The objective of this study is to make predictions about the innovations that will be brought to logistics with the new process started by Industry 4.0. This study covers information and predictions regarding the technologic applications brought by Logistics 4.0.
