The method of the paper is the theoretical analysis of the works on logistics and supply chain management as well as analytical articles and reviews on e-SCM, the major components of e-SCM and the effects of the Internet on the provision of logistic processes and the efficiency of supply chain management. The study provides best practices of implementation of e-supply chain management in order to illustrate the effectiveness of introducing e-SCM.
