Pursuing transport Digitalization to Achieve Transport Cost Optimization

Sun, November 19, 8:00 to 9:30am, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Floor: International Level, International Salon 9


Interest in transport digitalization is growing. However, the antecedents and outcomes of transport digitalization are not well understood. This study argues that transport digitalization first generates digital transport capabilities (end-to-end visibility, smart scheduling, and smart transport assets utilization), which leads to enhanced transport cost optimization. Data was obtained from 138 transport firms and analysed using SEM. The findings of the study confirm that transport digitalization results in the creation of the three digital transport capabilities which enhances transport cost optimization. Additionally, transport digitalization's effect on transport cost optimization is mediated through smart scheduling capability and smart transport assets utilization capability.
