Due to the new purchasing trends, omnichannels in the product distribution are exposed to dynamic changes. One of such changes is the digital transformation, which affects not only the way the purchases are made, but also transport, collection of products by customers and management of product returns. Oftentimes, these activities are transferred to the virtual world, and they are performed with the use of innovative technology. The aim of this paper is to present the use of in-store and out-store technologies in the omnichannel structure from the perspective of new emerging purchasing trends.

Keywords: omnichannel; in-store and out-store technologies

The article describes the issue of transport automation, which is one of the current trends in the development of vehicles and road infrastructure. The way to implement automated vehicles and then use fully autonomous vehicles has not yet been determined, but it can be assumed that they will provide a solution supporting sustainable mobility — especially within cities and urban agglomerations. It will be possible thanks to reaching a compromise between economic, social and environmental goals, characteristic for sustainable mobility. The implementation of new concepts in the field of mobility on demand, vehicle sharing and rental, combined with transport automation, should result in reducing traffic congestion and lowering the emission of harmful exhaust components. The models for the delivery of goods that can take place at night may also change, which may improve the use of the fleet of vehicles, road and warehouse infrastructure. Selected properties of automated and autonomous vehicles can be used to support the demands of sustainable mobility.

The study was aimed at characterizing the issues related to the autonomy of road transport. Aspects of urban mobility were presented, as well as examples of vehicles that are currently being tested in real conditions.

Keywords: autonomy of road transport; autonomous vehicles; urban mobility; modern technologies in transport

Management concepts that postulate reducing the negative impact of the economy on the natural environment, such as corporate social responsibility or sustainable development, are no longer just ideas that create the image of an organization, as they increasingly affect the level of its competitiveness, attractiveness for the recipient and value for stakeholders. Business entities that notice this trend are looking for new management solutions that will help to effectively implement the principles of green order and at the same time build the value of the organization. One of such solutions is ecologistics, discussed in this article. The aim of the article is to present the results of pilot studies on the advancement level of ecologistics in the companies of the Euroregion Nysa, in which the original model of ecologistics maturity in an enterprise was used. The pilot study was aimed at preparing research hypotheses for further research, as well as verifying the correctness of the theoretical model and the research tool in terms of content and form.
