AXIT expert paper looks at the challenges that confront today’s logistics industry

Industry 4.0 – the industry digitalization initiative spearheaded by the German government – raises the bar for businesses in the logistics sector. That’s according to an expert paper published by IT service provider AXIT, which predicts that the “fourth industrial revolution” will usher in highly personalized supply chain processes.

“Highly personalized products – manufactured in processes not planned over long periods but optimized (autonomously) on demand – must go hand in hand with a personalized supply chain,” according to the paper, which offers a detailed examination of the effects of self-monitoring smart production.

AXIT outlines the challenges that confront today’s logistics industry, what will change as a result of Industry 4.0, and how businesses can use “Logistics 4.0” solutions to prepare themselves for whatever the future holds in store. The paper examines both quick wins and the long-term trends that logistics professionals will encounter as a result of Industry 4.0.

The expert analysis delves into the possibility of addressing the dizzying array of new requirements with cloud-based technologies such as AX4. This IT platform offers the foundation you need to integrate man and machine in complex supply chains.


The customer places an order, triggering a series of processes that unfold automatically. In no time at all, machines build products tailored to the customer’s unique wishes. They communicate with one another, share production status updates, even organize themselves: Welcome to Industry 4.0 – the fourth industrial revolution!

What demands does this place on logistics? How autonomously can processes be managed? Our new expert paper looks at the challenges that confront today’s logistics industry, what will change as a result of Industry 4.0, and how businesses can use “Logistics 4.0” solutions to prepare themselves for whatever the future holds in store.
