Sending goods like an e-mail – only by one click. What sounds quite easy gets rather complex and uncertain when taking a closer look on the details. The groundbreaking change intended by the Physical Internet (PI) enables many beneficial aspects but rises a lot of questions, uncertainness and concerns. To change today´s supply chain processes, to change the assets which are needed to handle, store and transport goods, to introduce new information and communication technology and new business models will mean a fundamental change. Current logistic systems and the stakeholders involved in today´s logistics are deeply affected and influenced. To dispel concerns and to allow the PI-vison to become an operating system this paper proposes a methodology to create a roadmap to realize the PI for SME based on a real industry case study.
