Crowdsourcing concepts are a major development in the context of social media and Industry 4.0 as well as a possible enabler for dynamic logistics processes and concepts. In the light of increasing sustainability, flexibility, and security expectations towards global supply chains, solutions for logistics based on crowdsourcing may be promising—but still the proof of concept is missing for logistics applications in practice. Combined with a theoretical framework for crowdsourcing in logistics, this contribution outlines two case studies for regarding e-mobility, knowledge management in logistics, as well as disaster applications. This could be a supportive approach in developing new business models for real-life intelligent transport systems including customers and multiple stakeholder perspectives.
