The scientific article explores the concept and content of digital forensic logistics. The author substantiates the close relationship of digital forensic logistics with the process of organizing criminal investigations, building forensic versions, planning investigative actions and operational search activities. The author presents several areas of forensic logistics: logistics of evidence in criminal cases; logistics of the overall organization of the investigation of crimes; logistics of planning (selection of means and methods of investigation); logistics of putting forward versions; logistics of decisions made in criminal cases. The article makes a logical conclusion that the entire process of criminal investigation is carried out using a single digital logistics platform that includes algorithmization of actions and decisions in a criminal case. The author has established that the digital platform is based on various information flows, which are: digital forensic records; digital traces; electronic requests and instructions; digital video library, audio recording and photography; electronic assistant to the investigator; digital expertise; electronic forensic recommendations for the investigation of criminal cases. In conclusion, it is concluded that it is necessary to use digital logistics in criminal proceedings and criminalistics to improve the efficiency of investigative bodies in the investigation of criminal crimes.
