The impending decade heralds a transformative era where the pervasive integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents a pivotal challenge to established scientific principles governing engineering and management in production and logistics. The evolution of transit and distribution centers, crucial nodes in logistics, undergoes significant shifts. This paper delves into an extensive literature review system within the logistics industry, focusing on AI applications. It specifically explores inventory management and proposes innovative logistics distribution transport solutions. These solutions hinge upon leveraging automation equipment and intelligent AI technology for resource scheduling management, catalyzing operational mode innovations, enabling real-time supervision, orchestrating intelligent integration construction, and other multifaceted functionalities. The primary objective is to instigate a profound transformation in logistics enterprises, facilitating an extensive upgrade towards heightened wisdom and efficiency in operational paradigms. This anticipates a comprehensive redefinition of logistics infrastructure and processes, fostering a forward-thinking and adaptable logistics ecosystem in the forthcoming era.
