market. High competitiveness, globalization, high consumer awareness of their needs and finally the diversification of these needs both in relation
to the commodity and the forms of its delivery cause that enterprises must integrate into supply chains. They have to cooperate with each other
from the raw material phase up to the distribution of finished goods It can be said that nowadays it is not individual enterprises, but supply
chains compete with each other. Therefore, in order to effectively compete, it is necessary to combine three features: reducing material flow
costs, shortening the time of this flow and its individualization for the needs of customers. Effective management of the flow of materials in the
supply chain requires its planning. Therefore the competencies of logistics employees in planning the supply chain activities are so important.
