Abstract

The aim of the paper was to evaluate the current situation of Industry 4.0 in logistics in the machinery and equipment industry in Slovakia. The intention of the paper was to fill a research gap in the form of identification and analysis of the studied issue in the selected industry in Slovakia. The identification and analysis of the subject issue were conducted in 57 enterprises in the machinery and equipment industry in Slovakia. The results of the investigated issues were interpreted through descriptive and inferential statistics. The research instrument was a questionnaire, which involved a construction of several types of questions. The results of the testing showed that enterprises with different numbers of employees perceive, implement and use Industry 4.0 technologies in logistics. Also, based on the statistical hypothesis testing, it was confirmed that big data and the Internet of Things are the most used of the Industry 4.0 technologies in the selected logistics processes. The connection between Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0 will be an increasingly dominant theme as the Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a change that almost every enterprise in the world is going through or will go through.
