Technology Radar

The logistics sector is facing a plethora of challenges, both from competitors as well as disruptors. It is therefore a sector that cannot afford to not keep innovating, to secure a free and independent logistics industry. Logistics is much more than transport and linking horizontally various elements of today’s economies. Thus, logistics and global supply chain management secure manufacturing, trade and by this the competitiveness of economies. This means that the logistics value chain itself consists of the logistics service providers and freight transport companies, but additionally, technology providers with various digital competencies, multiplying organizations, e.g. local authorities, customs agencies, and finally the customer or shipper.

DIGILOGIC has identified some of the areas in which logistics and mobility industries are struggling for tech solutions:



The simplification and standardization of device interconnections so that the rapid connection and disconnection of sensor enabled transport items is facilitated.


Secure and reliable data management approaches. The ability to rapidly connect to and disconnect from supply networks (technically and business oriented).


The adoption, integration and use of smart infrastructures, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITSs), IoT devices and other intelligent edge-based technologies in supply chains to increase the efficiency, effectiveness and control of supply networks.


Simplify ICT systems, information interfaces and business models so that domain users are shielded from having to become technology experts and can focus instead on the efficient execution of transport and logistics operations.


Develop appropriate standards and data collection systems for reporting commercially and socially important information (e.g., emissions, load factors, congestion levels, etc.) so that proper comparisons can be obtained and informed decisions made.


Open cloud-based collaboration platforms to facilitate the dynamic and cost-effective formation and management of complex supply networks.


More advanced human-machine interaction. Innovation and tech becoming key drivers. Innovation and tech becoming key drivers.

The challenges that Africa is facing in the supply chain are not that different from those the rest of the world is facing:
