Abstract: The structure of contemporary capitalism is characterized by the contextual presence of three platforms that are driving the transformation of economic and social relations: industry, logistics and the digital economy. These three platforms show increasing degrees of intersection, generating a general reorganization of the way capitalism works. The content of jobs is changing, the precariousness of rights is increasing and people's sensitive data is becoming a marketing tool. In the meantime, economic actors are increasingly taking oligopolistic and monopolistic forms, which regulation cannot regulate precisely because of the transnational dimension of networks Logistics, and in particular, the maritime economy is an elective terrain for these global transformation processes, where the convergence between the three platforms becomes particularly evident. This paper discusses the discontinuity between production and logistics induced by digitization and the challenges facing digital sustainability, by identifying factors contributing to the generation of negative environmental impacts through uncontrolled electricity consumption.
