In this paper, we examine the role of intelligence of logistics solutions that are built by image processing components. Based on studies of the research field of intelligence and observations on how the term intelligence is used in practice, we derive an understanding of what intelligence encompasses in the context of image processing for logistics. The resulting conceptual framework offers different perspectives to intelligence and integrates sub-concepts, functions, and terms in an organized and interrelated manner. Thus, the presented study leads to a better understanding of what intelligence may mean in the context of designing intelligent logistics solutions by means of technical components such as image processing.
