Abstract

The major reason for creating presented maturity assessment model related to Logistics 4.0 assumptions is the growing importance of using Industry 4.0 tools and increase level of digitalization of logistics processes performed in activities of many global companies. A review of industry literature proves that Logistics 4.0 is a much less raised topic than the Fourth Industrial Revolution, hence it was considered that examining the level of maturity in relation to Logistics 4.0 assumptions can contribute to the development of the concept in Poland towards global enterprises successfully implementing digitalised processes. The constitutive aim of this paper was to build the model which should be used for investigating the level of maturity and implementation readiness of Polish enterprises from the TSL and manufacturing industry in relation to assumptions of Logistics 4.0. Enterprises were evaluated on the basis of research carried out in a pilot form. The article included indicating the assumptions of Logistics 4.0, tools used within its concept, as well as creating a maturity assessment model based on the analysis of a group of Polish enterprises. The conducted research indicated a small number of Polish companies effectively implementing solutions in the field of IV Generation Logistics, hence reasonable becomes the necessity of extending the research sample so as to improve the maturity assessment process, which will translate into an increase in the awareness of Polish companies regarding the requirements of digital transformation what will translate into an increase in their competitiveness and solutions used by them in the global logistics market.

 

Key words: Logistics 4.0, Supply chains and networks, Industry 4.0, Maturity assessment model
