Logistics is an essential part of business and supply chains. It connects continents, enterprises and commerce on different levels. Resources in logistics are a core factor on all levels and have been under research in many disciplines and sciences. Multidisciplinary nature of logistics has highlighted the unforeseen and overlooked resources in individual constituents of intricate logistic processes. Understanding and addressing them as resources by themselves is an important step towards increasing efficiency of logistics processes. This paper is a collective effort of different research approaches and methodologies applied in logistics to share knowledge via a multidisciplinary view on efficient use and management of resources.
