Abstract

This editorial piece discusses the current digitalisation trends and future research directions in freight transport and logistics. We characterise the current trends into three categories based on their transformative roles: connecting, collaborating, and capitalising. Under each category, we discuss the key technologies that are emerging and how they drive major changes in supply chain and logistics systems. We then introduce the special issue papers which address some of the topics under the proposed categories. The article ends with identifying the gaps in the literature and proposes a list of potential topics for future research.
