 Organization of transportation significantly affects the performance indicators of logistics systems. Therefore, more and more attention are paid to the development of organizational and managerial measures, the implementation of which helps to reduce delivery time, to ensure their reliability at an economically viable total cost based on digital technologies.
Automated management of the entire transport and logistics system of the port is becoming a mandatory requirement to ensure high-quality logistics in the supply chains. It is the precise organization of the logistics process that contains significant resources to reduce costs, increase speed, as well as reliability and quality of supply chains, but without the synergy of logistics and information technology, this is not possible.
The aim of the study is to increase the efficiency of the seaport and the provided port services by coordinating the flow processes formed by all participants in legal relations arising in the process of transshipment and processing of cargo in the seaport. In the formation of the reliability and quality of transport services, to which port services can be fully attributed, basically two methodological approaches are used: a process and a system approach.
The article focuses on the role and importance of seaports, as well as the formation of the quality of port services based on the application of the process approach. A classification of port services is proposed, which implies a wider list of classification features that consider the role and place of port services in the technological process of port operation. The analysis of the main technological processes associated with the passage of state control procedures in the seaport. The necessity of developing a unified network technological process of the seaport is identified and the principles of its formation are described.
The results of the study allow us to conclude that the interaction between all participants in the technological process of cargo handling in the seaport is low, which negatively affects the quality of port services and the competitiveness of the port. The development of a unified network technological process of the seaport will allow us to systematize the main processes of the seaport and to reveal the systemic links between them, which ensures stable and efficient operation of the port, as well as the interaction between the flows of information, cargo and transport.

One of the greatest challenges for middle and top management is to know where and when to invest in new technologies. This problem is even more complicated for supply chain managers as their decision will directly affect the way the company’s products are moved down the chain to the final customer.

The following article has been prepared to provide supply chain managers in the fields of retail, automotive, electronics, consumer goods and food supply, among others, with

an overview of the trends expected to have the greatest impact on the logistics industry between now and 2025. The article is based upon an extensive meta-analysis of over 70 studies on technology trends and a broad survey of experienced supply chain management professionals. In addition to a broad ranking of trend importance it will look in depth at the four key trends of logistics development: Omni-Channel Logistics, Segmentation, Big Data Management and the Internet of Things.

According to our findings, these four trends are likely to have a greater influence on resource allocation decisions than other trends also predicted to affect the industry, such as drones, blockchain and radio frequency identification. Coupled with the growth of these trends is an expected increase in demand for qualified IT staff who can provide technological infrastructure to drive competitiveness in these four core areas.

The issue of resource allocation will continue to play an essential role as the industry moves forward in the age of e-commerce, cloud-based systems and real-time tracking.

Our goal in this paper is to therefore provide managers with a concise overview of logistics trends expected in the near future as a means to assist in decision-making processes.
