Abstract

Mobile logistics (m-logistics) may be seen as an enabler for efficient and effective mobile commerce (m-commerce). Recent developments in mobile computing and communication standards and technologies allow more flexible operations and real-time monitoring in a supply chain. This chapter explores and examines the current status of m-logistics in North America, Europe and Asia (mainly China, South Korea and Japan). The chapter focuses on global m-logistics as an essential function and key factor in efficient and effective global m-commerce. Diffusion and adoption models as well as factors influencing the diffusion and adoption of standards and technologies in m-logistics are discussed. Our comparative study shows that all of the investigated regions have begun to adopt next-generation mobile logistics standards and technologies.
