In this research, the existing literature on the major antecedents influencing and impeding the adoption of technology in managing logistics was examined. The main antecedents examined include the sorts of technological applications used, the degree of application integration, cost reduction and service level improvement, process management and monitoring, safety and security enhancements, and company features. There was also a discussion of the internal and external obstacles to technology adoption. To improve technology adoption in logistics management, the study recommends raising investment in technology, effectively integrating both new and old technologies, establishing industry-based standards, and boosting employee participation.
