In this chapter, we discuss major technological and societal developments that determine our lives to a large extent, not in the least the way we organize our resource needs and hence logistics and supply chains. After outlining these developments globally, we give some examples of truly disrupting business models that are fundamentally changing our logistics and supply chain operations. Next, we look in more depth at the manifestation of the digital revolution in manufacturing and supply chains, as well as the many opportunities that these technologies offer in addressing a number of major societal challenges.
