As the world economy is slowly recovering from years of crisis, business logistics continues to strengthen its position as the key rationalization and developing business function - both at the level of one economic entity and in the context of the entire supply chain who now know no boundaries. Continuing the respectable tradition, 14th International Scientific Conference Business Logistics in Modern Management once again explores the scientific and technical challenges within the different areas of logistics and supply chain management. Of particular importance is the fact that this year the Conference has highly emphasized international character due to scientific and professional contributions achieved through 17 papers and 33 authors from 10 countries (Germany, Austria, Poland, Turkey, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Serbia, Hungary, Bosnia and Hercegovina and Croatia). Certain papers in this publication are the continuation of the ERASMUS collaboration and other projects between scientists from the Faculty of Economics in Osijek and scientists from institutions of higher education in Pforzheim, Celje, Szeged, Poznan and Subotica. In accordance with the growing importance of logistics in retailing, the largest number of papers is in the first thematic block with the same name.
