Background: The direction of global goods flows and the growth of nodes in trading networks have a significant impact on the development of logistics HUBs. The turbulent economic processes currently occurring in the world, the effects of globalization and “glocalization”, customer expectations and changing purchasing habits, and the increasingly deferred differentiated solutions in supply chains have a major influence on the emergence and spread of new technology solutions in the delivery of goods.

Results: This change has a significant impact on logistics processes as they face changing tasks and challenges in supply chain management. The authors intend to address this impact in their article, which also takes into account the results of international scientific papers. With the onset of the new millennium supply chains became more complex. The changes in the volume and geographical shift of goods that are traded redefine the topology of the world’s goods flow distribution. By presenting a deeper analysis of the effects, this article approaches the above-mentioned considerations from various perspectives; as yet we cannot judge which of these considerations will be the strongest, nor how the main priorities will develop.

Conclusion: The best answer can only be given by future events, although the authors’ modelling of the impacts and the evaluation of potential trends may indicate certain favoured directions. We can also conclude that  information technology tools have a great influence on boosting economic processes and faster networking.
