Business logistics in Europe as well as worldwide is developing extensively both in practical and in scientific area. Increasing global trade and declining percentage of logistics costs in GDP indicates that logistics business is performing more efficiently than ever before. Logistics practice is again reflected on 15th international scientific conference Business Logistics in Modern Management 2015 which was held at the Faculty of Economics of Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek. Inspired by ever changing market and contemporary logistics and supply chain management problems, Conference continues with tradition of scientific and professional papers that contribute to business logistics theory and practice in all main logistics research areas. This year’s publication presents 21 papers and 44 authors from 9 countries (Germany, Austria, Russia, Poland, Slovenia, Nigeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia). Traditionally, retailing logistics plays primary role in considerations of this Conference. First section starts with analysis of contemporary retail trade as a driver of supply chains, and continues with significance of retail internationalization development in multichannel environment. Authors are also emphasizing interesting topic of emerging RFID technology in retail studied from younger consumers' point of view. This thematic section ends with discussion about scope and significance of concentration in retail trade. Second thematic block is raising challenges in procurement and distribution channels. First article is considering procurement from business conduct approach, while second suggests appropriate procurement algorithms using harmonization method. Next article in this section gives an overview of Eco-food production, distribution channels and market perspectives in Croatia. A European experience in innovative solutions for a «last mile» delivery, with special emphasize on necessity to introduce innovative types of delivery vehicles is next topic, and this section ends with review of distribution channels of major construction materials. Transport and warehouse as main logistics components are topic of third thematic section. First paper examines the conditionality of logistics performances of transport corridor with cost and non-cost factors related to transport corridor where the port is located. Next article is evaluating methods to optimize the handling of reusable containers for parts supply at the manufacturer, and provides a determination for safety stocks of these containers. Two articles regarding warehouse issues provide review of evaluation problem and assessment method of warehouse process efficiency, and present the introduction of variable pay schemes in warehouse logistics leading to productivity improvement. Next article discuss about significance of the intermodal transport route through the port of Rijeka for sustainable transport by highlighting the significance of the introduction of new seaborne truck traffic services from the Southeast Europe countries to the North Adriatic Italian port terminals for the reduction of vehicles gas emissions and sustainable development. Transportation is in focus of last article in this section as well – implication of food standard and food safety supply chain for the final products transportation are considered through case study of Croatian chocolate producer. Last section presents development perspectives of supply chain and logistics. First article is talking about dimensions for supply chain integration - by applying process modelling and simulation methods, authors managed to represent characteristic features of supply chain operation at each integration level for all identified factors in article. Croatian competitiveness in the European logistics space is presented in second article of this section where authors argues that improving Logistics Performance Indicator to acceptable levels would significantly improve trade expansion, ability to attract foreign direct investments, and economic growth of Croatia. One more interesting idea comes with an article about “smart-box”, a business concept towards the physical internet that will enable private persons to ship their private parcels or luggage through designed intelligent containers (so-called “smart boxes”) and technologies for the branch-wide transport-related information flow. Next article provides policy framework for business concepts and models of urban/city logistics of developing economy in which author analyses the effect of traffic congestion, noise pollution and other negative externalities on city/urban logistics.
