The  sharing  economy,  co-creation,  the  fourth  industrial revolution  are  the  slogans  describing  the  modern environment of people's lives. In these concepts, the potential to  satisfy  consumers'  needs  is  hidden.  Logistics  faces  the challenge  of  meeting  the  requirements  set  by  these  new conditions. In the article, the authors wonder about the place of logistics in the new reality and its possible changeability.

The study is devoted to the finance supply chain. Due to the controversial treatment of the financial stream in the supply chain  as  the  object  of  interest  of  logistics  managers,  an attempt was made to identify and disclose the relationship between the finance supply chain and the competitiveness of this chain as a whole. The approaches to understanding the finance  supply  chain  was  characterized  and  the  use  of various financial methods influencing the competitiveness of the chain was indicated. Problems and dilemmas resulting from the search for compatibility between the objectives of enterprises participating in the supply chain and the chain as  a  whole  were  also  pointed  out.  The  applied  research method is the identification, interpretation and development of the current state of knowledge in the subject area.

Keywords: finance supply chain; supply chain management; supply chain management goals; supply chain competitiveness

The purpose of the article is to define the main directions of sustainable logistics development and to present a research model. The basis for the application process was a thematic review of English-language literature using the worldcat.org world  resource  catalog  for  resources  from  1996-2019.  Five main  directions  of  sustainable  logistics  development  were identified,  such  as  conceptualization  and  modeling,  policy and law, efficiency and costs, environmental measures and indicators as well as forces, determinants and development aspects.  A  model  for  conducting  research  on  sustainable logistics was proposed covering three layers: research fields, value creation and changes in logistics theory, which is open and can be applied to any field.

Keywords: sustainable logistics; development models; sustainability

In  the  era  of  modern  knowledge-based  economy,  it  is  not usually  an  important  task  to  constantly  assess  the effectiveness  of  education.  Therefore,  the  purpose  of  the article is to present the vocational education system for the transport and logistics at the high school level along with its assessment  of  the  effectiveness  of  education  in  terms  of achieved  effects  by  students  /  learners  in  the  form  of  pass rate exams confirming professional qualifications. The clash of  these  two  elements  allowed  for  the  formulation  of  a number of important conclusions. The article was based on the analysis of formal and legal documents and normative acts applicable in the area described.

Keywords: Vocational training in Poland; financing of vocational education in Poland; exam confirming qualifications in the profession
