Supply chain / Logistics 4.0

A smart supply chain is one element of a successful digital transformation. This is because digitalization and changing customer expectations with regard to information and mobility are driving Logistics 4.0. Automated processes, telematics, big data, sensor technology and cloud solutions are helping companies to digitalize their supply chains and have led to improvements in many areas of the transport and logistics industry.

For example, mobile solutions help CEP services to optimize last mile logistics. Companies are taking off into the digital future of air cargo handling with the help of products like ELWIS, and the Logistics Box is making intelligent routing possible across different modes of transport. Together with companies from the transport and logistics industry, Lufthansa Industry Solutions is developing unique solutions on the way to a smart supply chain.
