Cloud Computing: A Study of Logistics as a Service (LaaS)

Yu-Hsin Hung
Abstract—Recently, cloud computing that applies data to generate key information in logistics activities has been an important area for research. In the last five years, the trend of “cloud computing” has emerged and become a core element in logistics management research. The common cloud computing service models are Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Software as a Service. At present, a new term “Logistics as a Service (LaaS)” has been created for this industry. This paper discusses the characteristics and benefits of cloud computing. Furthermore, it proceeds to discuss the various concepts of LaaS. We reviewed the academic literature associated with LaaS to explore the development and research trends. We aim to investigate the methodology as well as future development of LaaS. We surveyed the 117 related publications from 2010 to 2018 and analyzed the time trend and disciplinary distribution of emerging LaaS topics. The findings indicate that intelligence and automation are the core issues that drive the research associated with LaaS. The main research types are system design, systematic analysis, and critical review. “Cloud,” “Logistics,” “Manufacturing,” and “System” are high-frequency keywords for LaaS.

Index Terms—Logistics as a Service (LaaS), cloud computing, logistics management, cloud computing service models.
