Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by DBLP, Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index, EI, Microsoft Academic, SCOPUS, Google Scholar and Semantic Scholar.

The transition to the fourth industrial revolution, the concepts of digitalization and the IoT cannot be implemented without sustainable logistics. The application of new technologies and digitalization of processes will allow us to move to the concept of Logistics 4.0. Development of technology in the era of Sustainable Development Goals implementation and rational resources consumption led to the formulation and new concept of economic development – the circular economy. This concept changes the paradigm of logistics processes organization, where reverse logistics, along with direct supply chains, becomes one of the elements of logistics chains. To ensure the efficiency of transport and related technological operations during the goods movement, new technologies are used at all stages of transportation.
