Abstract:

Background: Efficient management of dispersed and varied structure of supply chains is a complicated process both in terms of organisation and decision making. Merged companies forming groups with integrated capital consolidate to achieve internal coherence, also in the area of logistics. Overcoming differences resulting related to the fact that individual entities employ different rules of operation in carrying out logistic processes and their integration into one efficient system are the most challenging tasks the companies have to face. The purpose of the article is to present a concept of analysis of logistic actions efficiency in complex supply chains.

Material and methods: The results of studies of economic practice in 2016-2017 and literature studies carried out as part of research and optimisation projects prove the insufficient degree of employing the analysis of efficiency of logistic actions in complex supply chains. On the basis of explorations performed, the methodology of studies focused on the analysis of logistic actions' efficiency was developed. The methodology is now the conceptual basis for analysing efficiency in enterprises.

Results: The study resulted in the development of the concept concerning the performance of efficiency analyses focused on logistic actions, the particular elements of which have been verified in terms of their usefulness in economic practice.

Conclusions: Despite numerous references in literature, analysis of logistic actions' efficiency remains insufficiently defined. It makes it difficult to apply it in the economic practice of companies. The present article focuses on describing the concept of applying analysis of efficiency of logistic actions providing for the specific nature of dispersed supply chains.

Keywords: supply chain efficiency, dispersed supply chain, decision making process
