This article examines basic reasons behind the use of 3 PL, i.e. the main drivers of outsourcing (Chapter 2) as well as explains the essence of 3PL service (Chapter 3). In Chapter 4 the analysis of current state of 3 PL market in Europe has been analysed. Finally, Chapter 5 gives an overview of the main challenges that European 3 PL service providers currently are facing.

This paper refers to some problems on digital video recording of picture during driver’s training and examination process for obtaining driving license. Since 10 April 2006, all examining institutions have to use video and audio recording devices in Poland. The legal regulations in force do not clearly determine the functional requirements and technical parameters for video recorders; hence the actual devices used do not meet user requirements. This paper describes a deterioration of recording quality parameters of the video recorder as well as construction of camera, its main elements and their influence on the recording quality parameters. The paper refers to attention to geometrical deformation of image that is made in optical camera system. The authors have made an attempt to determine camera parameters, their location and quality of the picture. In the mentioned case the objective and subjective picture validation methods will be presented.
Keywords: video register, quality picture evaluation

The significant rise of the construction costs of transport investment projects at present days is considered in the paper. The analysis of reasons of cost rise is accomplished on the purpose to use the EU financial support and other financing resources for transport sector more effectively and to plan the further usage of investments for transport infrastructure. Costs, acting factors, financing resources influence on the priority projects of transport infrastructure are analysed and changes of construction costs are defined and the problems of the implementation of infrastructure project are clarified. The recommendations are offered concerning preventive measures for up the costs of transport infrastructure works and their application possibilities, and to substantiate the development of infrastructure projects.
Keywords: transport infrastructure projects, financing resources, the evaluation of investment projects, construction costs, influence of external factors

In this research the main attention is paid to the analysis of the reasons – why travellers choose train rather than bus in some regional directions in Latvia. This analysis is done on the basis of the results of questionnaire and in future it may be the basis for the Discrete-Choice models application. Also the analysis of the travellers’ attitude to service of the Riga Coach Terminal is fulfilled on the basis of the annual questionnaire data.
Keywords: coach terminal, passengers, service quality, transportation, transit capacity

In 2006 out of one hundred imported marine containers from China to Europe, forty one were repositioned to China empty and from Russia at least seventy. To promote a healthy trade between these countries, it requires a more balanced cargo flows. It is of high importance that the marine containers filled with commodities sent from China to the Baltic and Russia would not be transported back to China empty. This paper provides a global analysis on freight flows by commodity to and from China with focus on a comparative analysis of potential export cargo to China. Our goal is to explore the possibility and to propose a logistics mechanism to promote the growth of container trade between China and Russia via Estonia. In developing our analysis, wastepaper is considered in this paper as one of the potential export commodities from Russia and Baltic through Estonia to China. The potential of this commodity to fill containers that would otherwise be repositioned empty to China, and the possibility of consolidating empty containers at the Port of Tallinn from other trade flows with China, is examined.
Keywords: Wastepaper, container, export, market, trade, port

The purpose of this article is to present results of the research of feasibilities of freight transportation by ferry between Klaipeda Seaport in Lithuania and Swinoujusce Seaport in Poland. The study is related to the BSR Interreg III B NP project Baltic Gateway PLUS. The study includes the following researches: (1) to specify freight flows to Region Berlin via Klaipeda Seaport; (2) to specify freight flows to Region Berlin via Kalvariju cross border check point. The applied method is the collection of official statistical data for years 2005 and 2006 from legal statistical bureaus and some freight operators. The study concluded that freight flow via Klaipeda port and Kalvariju check point (incl. Lazdiju) to the so-called Region Berlin defined as the destination point in which freight was unloaded was 199,59 thousand tons in 2005 and 229,96 thousand tons in 2006. Freight flow via Klaipeda port and Kalvariju check point (incl. Lazdiju) from the so-called Region Berlin defined as origin point in which freight was loaded was 48,88 thousand tons in 2005 and 78,45 thousand tons in 2006. About 10 % of freight flow in axis Kalvariju-Berlin is loaded/unloaded in the so-called Region Berlin. About 90 % of flow in the mentioned axe is a cross trade flow of Region Berlin.

The railway and road transport are rival in the regional passenger transportation of the country. The cost is a general index of passenger transportation. So, this article deals with the cost of the regional passenger transportation in the railway and road transport. The cost is comparable to 1 passenger kilometres, according to train types and according to expense elements. There are described the factors influenced to the cost transportation in the vehicles in the given study.

Urban transportation systems can be evaluated in various ways reflecting different perspectives concerning users, modes, land use, transport problems and solutions, as well as the means of measuring transport activity and the type of the used performance indicators. As concerns the user the transport system is characterized by the following properties of transport system: mobility, accessibility and reliability. There exist various approaches and methods for estimating the given characteristics. Several indicators and the indices describing properties of the transport system that can be calculated by means of various approaches and methods are described in the article. The purpose of the given article is the review of existing methods of the city transport system performance estimation from the user’s point of view as well as the evaluation of mobility, accessibility and reliability. The article mentions the problems, which arise in the process of estimating the urban transport system’s efficiency.
