Abstract [en]

Although IT is playing a significant role in road freight transportation and logistics, there exists a lack of comprehensive knowledge of IT and productivity in the area. This paper presents a review of the research on IT-productivity in the operations and maintenance of road freight transportation and logistics as well as proposes directions for future research. We have conducted the review in both academic and non-academic sources. Based on 26 papers, we have structured the review in three levels: industry level, firm level, and individual level. A number of insights have been made, which characterize the current state of knowledge. Several insights call for further research. We have found that there is a diversity in the terminologies when referring to the positive impact of IT on fuel efficiency for road freight transportation and logistics. Our findings suggest that there is a lack of methodological diversity while understanding the effect of IT on load efficiency in transportation. The existing field experiments can be characterized by two phase design, small sample size and short time for the intervention phase. There is a lack of conceptualization of complementarities when the existing studies show the importance of incentives and training with the introduction of a new digital technology in relation to productivity. This paper is a first attempt to synthesize relevant research on IT-productivity in the operations and maintenance in road freight transportation and logistics.
