Abstract

The article works analytically-argumentatively on the question of whether a servitization through the platform economy is looming for logistics. This would be of strategic relevance for companies and public policy because of the enormous importance of the sector for the economy and consumption. The analysis shows that platform economy business models can be interpreted as a new development stage of logistics services. However, it is relevant that the decades-long innovation symbiosis between the IT sector and the logistics sector is dissolving and entering into a competitive relationship. A contest has already begun in which either the established logistics sector can build up the necessary IT competence faster, or the IT sector can build up the necessary logistics competence faster. Strategic decisions by companies and public policy should focus on this contest.
