Because of the constant influx of people, big cities are growing, and life in them is getting more challenging. City governments face increasing challenges related to the citizens supplying water and food, energy, public transport, roads, health services, and others for waste removal, recycling, and storage. Cities adapt to new conditions by using new technologies and innovative solutions. Cyber-physical systems, digitization, networking, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and blockchains are tools that can help smart cities function. In this review paper, based on a review of relevant literature, the authors discussed some possible models for meeting the logistical needs of citizens in Smart cities. They focused on Smart-city technologies. The subject matter of this article is very complex and covers several disciplines, such as management, transport, and information technologies. Few have mastered the necessary knowledge in all these areas. The authors wish that this multi-dimensional presentation of the current situation will be helpful to those who deal with the organization of life in cities, logistics, or the application of information technologies in business organizations, but also ordinary citizens who are not yet familiar with these problems. The article should allow the reader to see the complexity of last-mile delivery and encourage it to use its potential to get involved in solving this problem.
