This study by Prof. Johannes Kern of Dual University Baden-Württemberg Lörrach gives an overview and summary of studies on the state of digitalization in Logistics infrastructure (Seaports, Airports, Warehousing), Logistics execution (Road transport, Sea transport, Air transport and Courier, Express and Parcel delivery), and logistics services and advisory.
The digital transformation of seaports and airports is taking longer than in other areas of logistics, where only 3% of container terminals are (semi-)automated.
Meanwhile, approximately 30%-40% of warehouses use some form of Industry 4.0 technology, such as sensors, robotics and automation, or predictive analytics.
In the road freight industry, 35-40% of enterprises used transportation management systems and other technologies to improve operations. Shipping businesses are carefully embracing the digital shift in sea freight, therefore few carriers use innovative means to engage with their clients, such as marketplaces. In air fright, carrier connection lags even behind maritime carriers, as corporations struggle to integrate digital solutions that do not instantly result in cost savings. Various technologies for courier, express, and parcel delivery are already established and available, but are still in the early stages of implementation.
