This paper describes how transport is one of the most important and influential driving force of the economy. It current position indicates that it is necessary to find a way of reducing the dependence of the transport activities’ development rate on the level of the economy’s development. To this end, European Union’s experts introduced an action plan, set out in the European transport policy, which could curb the negative consequences of the transport growth. These measures include shifts in the balance between different types of transport, reducing narrow throats and putting consumers to the heart of transport policy. The desired balance of the participants in the European-global transport system can be achieved by the support of quality logistics. According to one of the many definitions, logistics’ task is among other things to ensure sufficient amounts of goods are adjusted to receipts, and are in the right place at the right time. Goods need to be delivered in a good condition without damage or loss.
