This paper aims to give an overview of the potential which mobile applications have in aiding special logistic processes like warehouse management, fleet control and tracking, document handling, etc. In the previous decades industrial solutions dominated the software market. These solutions were highly reliable but also very expensive and not flexible in respect of implementing modification needs. The sudden evolution of mobile technology made it possible to apply cheap or even free applications to aid logistic processes. This paper deals with the main advantages of using mobile apps in supporting certain processes which are usually the cost factor, flexibility and easy system migration possibilities.
