Industry 4.0, also known as Industrial Internet of Things, is expected to revolutionize industrial value creation. Current research in context of Industry 4.0 mainly focuses on production itself or on production-related logistics processes. Logistics as such, let alone project logistics, has been scarcely investigated by current research. Therefore, this paper attempts to address the topic of project logistics in context of Industry 4.0. Using a case study within a German industrial enterprise and its five logistics partners composing an entire project logistics value chain, we find challenges, potentials and recommendations for integrating Industry 4.0.
