A number of drivers and trends in T&L (Transport & Logistics) segment are investigated by DIAKINISIS, including utilization of robots and machines (for better handling warehouse inventory management procedures), mobile-first strategy for last-mile delivery, blockchain, AI and data predictive analytics. Moreover, DEDICAT 6G objectives related to advanced AI-based security and privacy protection with blockchain based trust management platform, trust building related to smart warehousing and T&L operations are of high interest for DIAKINISIS. The role of 5G and beyond is crucial in the efficient deployment of smart warehouse equipment and applications, as it provides the necessary networking services in terms of bitrate, network stability and security. Although, today, several network types are operational within Diakinisis warehouses it is expected that 5G/6G will provide a unique and efficient networking environment for smart warehouse operations.
