Abstract

Digital transformation has a significant impact on the development of such an important sector of the economy as logistics. All major economic trends are traced in logistics, and basic digital technologies are already being used. At the same time, there are certain obstacles to the effective development of digital logistics. For example, there is a lack of informational integration of supply chains. This article systematizes information about the state of digital transformation in logistics, about the main trends, applied technologies, analyzes it, simulates the digital logistics ecosystem, identifies stakeholders, drivers of digital logistics transformation, requirements for the development of the industry. Based on this, the main lines of action to improve the efficiency of logistics activities in the context of digital transformation are formulated. The implementation of the proposed actions requires the integrated use of technology and a specialized mathematical apparatus. The integrated actions of participants in the digital logistics ecosystem will ensure the required role of logistics in integrated economic development.
