The subject of enterprises location is one of the key issues in the field of enterprise science. The problem of the location of logistics facilities (including warehouses) is taken up relatively rarely. It is also a relatively new issue, and therefore still poorly researched. The aim of the study is to assess the level and diversity of location attractiveness of the warehouse market. The study covered 29 locations in Poland. The study is also an attempt to use the classical standardization method adopted for the assessment of partial indices, which were then reduced to the synthetic form of the Perkal index. The location factors underlying the assessment are: transport accessibility, business conditions, labor market, and the economic potential of the area. The overriding issue is geographic conditions — resulting from the location. These, in turn, affect the costs of transport, which account for approximately 50% of the cost of operating the supply chain. The result of the research is a ranking of location attractiveness of the warehouse market.

This article contains an analysis of Polish passenger transport in regular and charter traffic with the specification of carriers for the years 2011–2018. A forecast of traffic growth in the aviation market until 2035 is presented. Took into account situation of the pandemic in early March 2020 was addressed. The trend occurring in the examined period was analyzed and conclusions relating to the changing transport structure were made. The compilation of statistical data made it possible to carry out the analysis based on the available resources of the Central Statistical Office and the Civil Aviation Office. This allowed to fill the gap in the literature, where previously information was compiled only for each year separately.

The article concerns the study of communication behavior of high school and university students in Piła and Chodzież counties. The main problem is the mobility preferences of pupils and students. The article characterizes the concept of city, urban transport and mobility, and then proposes a mobility model that takes into account the preferences of residents when choosing the means of transport. The article ends with a presentation of survey results and drawing appropriate conclusions. They will help in presenting the proposed directions of development of transport infrastructure in the Piła and Chodzież counties.

The ongoing epidemic of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has had many negative social and economic consequences. The COVID-19 pandemic has also fundamentally changed the way rail transport is managed. Due to the threat of SARS-CoV-2 virus transmission, the demand for rail crossings has decreased. In addition, restrictions began to take effect on public transport, including compulsory mouth and nose coverings, as well as restrictions on passenger numbers. The emergency situation also affected the current rail network, thus limiting the transport offers. The fundamental aim of the article is to review the changes in rail transport with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to examine the degree of inconvenience to passengers. For this purpose, a case study method was used to analyze the way PKP Intercity operates. EIP and EIC class trains were used as examples. The presented work will allow to indicate some relations between the number of cancelled trains and alternative connections and waiting time for them. The analysis of the network of connections will make it possible to indicate the most affected railway routes in connection with the suspension of trains. Another aim of the article is to sort out the course of restrictions on rail transport related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus epidemic. The publication may inspire further research on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the management of passenger rail transport.
