Knowledge and its management are the key success factors for enterprises operating on the market today. One of the main features of good management in terms of building unique competitive advantages is the company's ability to learn and transfer knowledge. Nowadays, knowledge is becoming - on a micro scale — a priority production factor and — on a macro scale — a determinant of technical progress. The potential benefits resulting from the implementation of the knowledge management system include: creating new products and brands, building the image, optimizing the use of resources, building effective internal and external relations, creating innovations and conducting research and development works. The aim of the article is to present the results of research conducted on a group of 105 companies in the context of the impact of selected elements of the knowledge management system on: the number of complaints, the number of hazardous events and accidents, work efficiency, the number of customers, the amount of staff turnover, and the number of ideas and improvements.

The aim of this article is to determine the role of access-based distribution in sharing economy in the context of supply chain management. The research method used in this paper is the review of the existing literature. The reviewed literature is related to the areas of access-based distribution, sharing economy and supply chain management. The main concept introduced in this paper is access-based distribution. The results concern the interplay between access-based distribution and sharing economy in the context of supply chain management. The main research limitation is the relatively scarce literature on the topic of access-based distribution in the context of supply chain management. The main research implication is to provide the basis for further research related to such concepts as sharing economy, closed-loop supply chains and smart product-service systems. The originality of this study lies in the lack of comprehensive elaborations on the topic of access-based distribution in the context of supply chain management.

Celem artykułu jest określenie roli dystrybucji opartej na dostępie w gospodarce współdzielenia w kontekście zarządzania łańcuchem dostaw. Metodą badawczą zastosowaną w niniejszym opracowaniu jest przegląd istniejącej literatury. Analizowana literatura dotyczy obszarów: dystrybucji opartej na dostępie, gospodarki współdzielenia oraz zarządzania łańcuchem dostaw. Główną koncepcją wprowadzoną w niniejszym opracowaniu jest dystrybucja oparta na dostępie (access-based distribution). Wyniki badania dotyczą wzajemnego oddziaływania pomiędzy dystrybucją opartą na dostępie a gospodarką współdzielenia w kontekście zarządzania łańcuchem dostaw. Głównym ograniczeniem badawczym jest skąpa literatura na temat dystrybucji opartej na dostępie w kontekście zarządzania łańcuchem dostaw. Główną implikacją badawczą jest stworzenie podstaw do dalszych badań związanych z takimi koncepcjami jak gospodarka współdzielenia, łańcuchy dostaw obiegu zamkniętego oraz inteligentne systemy produktowo-usługowe (smart product-service systems). Oryginalność artykułu wynika z braku kompleksowych opracowań na temat dystrybucji opartej na dostępie w kontekście zarządzania łańcuchem dostaw.

Connections between voivodship cities are very important as they facilitate not only the movement of people, but also of capital, information and other resources. These functions are fulfilled by the railway connection between Krakow and Katowice. The main academic and industrial centres etc. are located in these cities. On the route Kraków– Katowice there are: a part of the Krakow agglomeration and a part of the Upper Silesian conurbation. For many years these cities have suffered from unsatisfactory journey times and a low number of trains. Travelers who wanted to use public transport services were left to use buses. From December 2020, the number of train services on this route has been increased and journey times significantly reduced. On this route, the number of connections operated by PKP Intercity, POLREGIO increased. A few courses of Koleje Śląskie have also appeared. This phenomenon has a positive impact, because the competition between rail and bus transport has started. The main purpose of the article is to examine the consequences of the modernization of the railway line connecting Krakow and Katowice and its impact on the network of connections. The secondary one is to compare the offers of carriers. The article focuses on parameters related to: the number of connections per day, travel time and the number of stations served. These considerations may be an inspiration for further research on the network of connections between metropolitan cities, such as Krakow and Katowice.
