Resumen

The availability of high quality transport and logistics services (TLS) is of paramount importance for growth and competitiveness of the European economy. The objective of this paper is to describe, from the continuous innovation perspective, how companies in this industry use ICT for conducting business and to assess the impact of this development for firms and for the industry as a whole. Using the SCP model and the bi-directional relationships of its elements the paper identifies the links between ICT adoption and innovation dynamics. Moreover, the analysis allows identifying the driving forces of ICT and its impact on selected business dimensions. On the driver’s side, there are three points that are worth mentioning: increasing market competition, the relationships of firms interacting with each other and the availability and quality of complementary assets such as employee skills and IT know-how. On the impacts’ side, firms advanced in terms of ICT usage are more likely to have outsourced business activities. Finally, a set of recommendations on how to further improve the continuous innovation factors in the TLS industry is presented.
