Logistics and supply chain management not only includes activities related to the physical movements of the goods/ items but also management of relationship with suppliers and customers. However Logistic means fulfil the needs of customers are satisfaction through interface and coordination of the supply chain. The main objective of the paper is to determine the automation technology used in logistics and supply chain management including new technology like automation with automatic identification of materials and items. The paper also discusses the impact of the automation technology and challenge to implementing automation technology on logistics and supply chain management. The author mainly focuses on the both primary and secondary data for collecting data relating to various advance technology like automation used in logistics and supply chain management. The author draws conclusion that technology play important role to increased supply chain competitiveness and performance by effectiveness of logistics system.
