Abstract:

Regional logistics platforms represent a modern approach and development instrument, aimed towards fostering and facilitating logistics activities and business exchange with associated flows in a specific geographic region, whose origins can be traced back to ancient trade routes. Though a widespread buzzword in political and business circles the logistics platform still lacks a clear definition and thorough understanding of the concept in its entirety. We identify several uses of the term and place it in the supply chain environment. Different contextual and business case examples are presented to differentiate between distinctive meanings of the word. A common logistics platform definition is proposed and applied by means of SWOT analysis to the development state of the platform in Slovenia.
