The article contains content that can be included in three theses describing the participants of the transport market, namely mainly about small and medium enterprises (companies) and their behaviour on it; the scope of transport services other than transport of goods and changes in transport and forwarding services.

The article shows that the increase in the scope of transport services has resulted in the creation of a number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) specialising in in the implementation of partial tasks in transport systems. As a result of the phenomenon of integration of partial services implementation, sets of services are created which create an integrated logistics service. Such a procedure is a result of striving for optimization of undertakings in the whole transport chain (channel).

Furthermore, in order to achieve the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises in the transport services market, the article highlights the need for, and even the need for, improvement and making permanent changes in kinds, forms, and manners of still offered services and in their scope.

The article also justifies that the latest and most frequent trends in the functioning of small and medium-sized transport enterprises in the transport chain (transport channel), concern cooperation with large international companies within the established capital groups. The article ends with justified and appropriate conclusions and generalisations.

The article presents selected examples of implementation of support tasks by the host nation support for the benefit of allied and partner troops, performing tasks on the territory of Poland, resulting from the new geopolitical conditions in which Central and Eastern Europe found itself. The resulting threats and dynamics of change forced the Alliance's authorities to take a new approach to strengthening NATO's eastern flank as part of improving the region's security. As a result of the actions undertaken, the exercises in Poland and the Baltic countries, the relocation of allied troops by our territory and their deployment as a result of the eFP (enhanced Forward Presence) and Operation Atlantic Resolve were intensified.

As a consequence, the increase in the involvement of the alliance in the performance of tasks on our territory requires increased participation in the HNS, not only the military system of the state, but also involvement of the non-military defense system of the state.
