ABSTRACT

Stock-out – an inventory shortage, is a situation which periodically or constantly retailers, networks of retail trade (and other commercial organizations connected with replenishment and stocks expenditure) face worldwide. Numerous publications of foreign authors proposing practical solutions for such organizations is a vivid example of it. Some retail chain stores and enterprises even issue guidebooks to handle stock-out.
In domestic literature, there are publications describing various stock-out forms, as well as recommendations associated with the decision-making on them. Nevertheless, the experience connected with the prevention and struggle against the stock-out consequences is uncoordinated, lacks common structure, and sequence of actions. An enterprise facing stock-out receives only fragmentary data on the nature of this phenomenon, necessary instruments of influence and the sequence of actions.
To give an idea of the existing spectrum of analytical approaches and possible practical solutions, is one of the main objectives of this article. At the same time, issues related directly to determining the stock volume and other parameters of a company's inventory management system are considered. Based on the analysis of the issues described above, a possible algorithm of actions an organization can follow in the event of a stock-out, is presented. The possible development of an approach to manage the most complex stock-out case – «with a lost demand» is also considered.

ABSTRACT

The article is devoted to the topical problems of the wide development of the Arctic zone of the planet by the Russian Federation; these problems are of great importance in the context of increasing international competition and tightening economic sanctions against Russia by the EU, Canada and the United States. The prospect of a kind of revolution in global logistics has long attracted the attention of the Arctic States, whose borders are relatively far from the Arctic circle. We are talking primarily about China, India, Japan, South Korea, Singapore etc. (a total of 12 countries), that today have the status of permanent observers of the Arctic Council. The directions of scientific research and practical projects of these countries in the Arctic are analyzed.

In these circumstances, Russia faces the task of protecting the Arctic region as a national resource base and transport artery in an economically feasible way, relying on the capabilities of modern logistics. The current situation in the world requires our country, first of all, to strengthen its power capabilities in the Arctic region. However, this should be implemented with the help of innovative logistics technologies, seeking to improve the economic efficiency of the problem. Innovative Russian logistics technologies that can significantly enhance the competitive potential of Russia in the Arctic region are considered. The supply chain management (SCM) paradigm is proposed as a methodological basis which provides for the achievement of the intended result not only and not so much the intensive use of existing ones, but also the ability to constantly produce new competitive advantages. The authors ' proposals will contribute to the growth of domestic oil quotes in the European markets, to the activation of domestic and foreign investments in the construction of the Northern sea route, will strengthen the economic and national security of the country

ABSTRACT

Within the framework of the digital economy development in Russia, one of important areas is “digital logistics/ supply chain”. In the market of freight and passenger traffic the use of digital technologies gives a competitive advantage, therefore their implementation is becoming inevitable for the entire logistics industry. This article considers trends, advantages, prospects and barriers to the implementation of digital technologies in the Russian Federation; the main types of these technologies and their influence on logistics business processes efficiency. A scheme for digital technologies (Big Data, IoT (Internet of Things), Blockchain, Cloud Services, 3D Printing) using in the supply chain are also presented. This paper provides the analysis of digital technologies use impact and a methodology for assessing the relationship with the components of the model of total logistics costs (TLC) in supply chains. 
It should be noted that proposed TLC model does not only include  logistics operations costs, but also the costs associated with complete customer satisfaction.The use of digital technologies in logistics makes it possible to increase efficiency,precision and speed of logistics operations, however it requires significant financial investments, personnel training, accounting long-term physical movement over long distances, problems of customs clearance and terminal handling of goods.

ABSTRACT

The internet retail development entails changes in supply chain structure, as well as the need for a complex logistics service for online retailers. The logistics providers can cope with these challenges and changes. The author justifies the expediency of this cooperation. The justification is based on several points: availability of a logistics provider infrastructure, additional services for internet retailers in the interaction with 3PL-provider, transaction costs reduction for internet retailers, scale economies in logistics service for online retailers, the current situation in the market of logistic services etc.

Based on the analysis of references the author notes that insufficient attention is paid to the logistics service development for internet retailers. As a result, the author has developed a procedure of the logistics service system development for internet retailers and the requirements for its implementation by a service provider. The special attention in this procedure in addition to the process requirements and logistics infrastructure formation is paid to the development of 3PL-provider services standard.
