    Abstract

    Digitalization of industries, Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are frequently discussed among scholars and practitioners. Digitalization has a potential to provide remarkably increased visibility of logistics and supply chain processes, over the whole lifecycle of the products. As a result, cost efficiencies as well as value improvements are expected outcomes of increased digitalization efforts. Despite many new technologies and applications available on the market, observations from practice however indicate that the pace of implementation of digitalization in industrial logistics and supply chain management is slow. The purpose of the paper is to discuss the contemporary digitalization of logistics and supply chain management in Sweden and Finland. More specifically, the paper address (1) new and changed roles of supply chain members, and (2) barriers to digitalization.
