The essence of the logistics activities of the enterprise in modern business conditions

Keywords: logistics activities, approach, flows, goals


The article considers the evolution of scientific approaches to the essence of the concept of "logistics activities". In particular, the concepts provided by different scientists from the standpoint of systemic, functional, economic and process approach are systematized. Control objects are defined depending on each approach. The property of logistics activity as interaction with the external environment is emphasized. It is substantiated that the interaction with the external environment occurs through timely and reliable exchange of information. The main prerequisites for the implementation of logistics activities, such as: globalization, technological progress, knowledge economy. The nature and features of each of the prerequisites for the implementation of logistics activities are revealed. The importance of the concept of prevention of negative impact on the environment is emphasized. Within this concept, "green logistics activities" are gaining popularity, which are aimed at saving energy, materials, efficient land use, reducing air pollution, by reducing the number of lands, air, water transport, noise and hazardous waste regulation. A manifestation of the environmental approach in logistics is reversible logistics, i.e. logistics that involves the return of goods and waste. Taking into account the considered approaches, the definition of logistics activity is given.
