Plataformas Logísticas: uma abordagem sobre as tipologias e características através de uma revisão sistemática

Currently the constant competition of markets has made organizations start to rethink their logistics strategies in the form of using a system of logistics operations that is capable of integrating the resources and people involved in the supply chain. This work has, as an objective of research, analyzed the main typologies and characteristics of logistic platforms. The research methodology adopted to reach the goals of the research was based on a systematic review, because it allowed the researchers the elaboration and development of knowledge about the topic of logistics platforms in a structured way that was clear and objective. It has become evident during the research and analysis that the use of logistics platforms emerges as an alternative face to contemporary challenges, where a logistic redesign is necessary to meet the demands and transposition of the current restrictions imposed on the distribution of products in urban centers or even to respond dynamically and efficiently to the various links in the supply chain.
