This master thesis provides a thorough review of the available literature related to the Internet of Things appplications in agri-food supply chain management. The master thesis is structured into six sections. The first section describes in brief the overall methodology used for conducting the research as well as a brief introduction to supply chain management. The second section describes the Internet of Things, the technologies used, the domains in which is applied, and how Internet of Things applications can benefit businesses. The third section analyzes the supply chain, logistics operations and the current trends in supply chain management. In the fourth section the research focuses on the supply chain of agricultural products and its interrelationship with the Internet of Things and sections and ways in which the latter is applied. In the fifth section a classification of the available literature is provided based on two key drivers: product (meat, seeds, etc) and processes (logistics, food safety, etc). Finally, in the sixth section several limitations of the Internet of Things applications in agrifood supply chain are highlighted along with fruitful areas for further research.
