Background: Access to information is the key element in the successful and efficient organization of transport & logistic processes. The importance of real-time access to information is confirmed by a panel workshop carried out with support of design thinking methodology. There are two ways of gaining access to the right information - manual, where human agency is needed and fully automatic, where new M2M technology is implemented. Implementation of such technology improves seamless communication during transport execution and allows real-time access to needed information. The aim of the paper is to evaluate the influence of the effectiveness of using M2M technology and traditional way of communication as well as data gathering in order to ensure seamless communication in the supply chain.
Methods: Survey, design thinking, desk research and real case study results were used in the paper.
Results and conclusions: Seamless communication and implementation of M2M technology within the whole supply (including modes of transport and transport units) chain is a backbone of the lean and reliable digital supply chain.
Keywords: logistics, digital supply chain, seamless communication, M2M, supply chain visibility, time slots management, accounting of transport costs
