The article analyses theoretical aspects of the qualitative assessment of logistics and transport specialists’ potential, as well
as provides research results on competence and capacity-building process in preparation of logistics and transport specialists. The
results enabled to identify problematic areas of graduate integration in the labour market and foresee the possible requirements for
professional development. In some cases, internal motivation is related to problematic points or negative view from the environment,
as well as poor understanding of knowledge benefits in the person’s practical life. Training and education is objectively at the meeting
point between research, technological and organisational systems. In such conditions the objective of the education on logistics is to
offer the customers the best possible service in the field of the transfer of knowledge in harmony with the trend in logistics programme
development. The main problems and perspectives of logistics education and training process are discussed in this article.
Keywords: logistics competence, education, problems of training process

EU Directive of MARPOL Annex VI and its economic impact on the Nordic paper industry is theme of this research work.
Empirical data for analysis purposes was gained from a large Nordic paper mill that exports bulk products mainly to Europe (70 % of
its volume). The study shows that in the end the industry’s location still has an economical effect, and that the location has a distinct
impact on competition through rising transportation costs. Environmental regulation continues and fosters long-term upwards
trajectory of transportation cost, which has been experienced by the paper mill earlier during years 2001-2009. Sulphur regulation
change to cleaner grades of maritime diesel did not turn as heavy cost increase in the 2015, however, possibility to gain cost benefits
in rapidly deteriorating oil markets were not reached either. Therefore, in depressed industrial product markets, like paper industry,
implications were such that margins of export industry remained low.

This article presents a detailed description and explanation of the methodology for evaluation of quality public transport
criteria in terms of passenger satisfaction. In 2011-2014 this method was applied in an assessment of passenger satisfaction with the
urban public transport system in Ostrava. In order to assess passengers´ satisfaction, traffic survey has been chosen utilizing
questionnaire and student inquirers. The results achieved by application of the method have been processed to evaluate time
accessibility criteria of a public transport system. Time accessibility criteria group (accessibility of stops, waiting for a connection and
transferability in the public transport network) evaluates physical and psychological aspects of the passenger during his arrival at the
station, while leaving the station, in the course of waiting for a connection and during the transfer. The time accessibility criteria are
considered the most significant criteria that impact a passenger's decision to utilise public transport options.
Keywords: Public transport quality evaluation, passengers´ satisfaction, time accessibility criteria, accessibility of stops, waiting for
connection, transferability in transport network

The article deals with the motor vehicle tax in relation with fiscal decentralization, particularly from 2005 with competence
delegated to the self-governing regions in the area of motor vehicle tax. The result of this provision in the field of fiscal decentralization
is increasing of differences in the motor vehicle tax burden in self-governing regions of Slovakia. The paper is the result of solving a
series of impact studies solved by the authors in this field. Gradually over time from the transfer of competences in setting tax rates
on motor vehicles to self-governing regions and usage of the incomes of this tax can realistically assess the development and impact
of this element of fiscal decentralization in the Slovak Republic as well as propose a solution of resulting situation. The aim is to
eliminate differences in motor vehicle tax burden at regional and interstate level while maintaining the current level of tax revenues
of self-governing regions.
Keywords: taxation, motor vehicle tax, tax rates, fiscal decentralization, motor vehicle, self-governing region

The main objective of this paper is to analyse user satisfaction with road, maritime, air, and rail transport services in Turkey
using four distinctive ordered response models. The estimation results reveal that partial constrained generalized ordered logit
model has the best model fit for road and maritime transport services. In addition, ordered logit and generalized ordered logit are the
convenient models for air and rail transport services, respectively. Results also indicate that current residence (urban), gender
(male), occupational sector (private), and education level (low educated) were the statistically significant variables that are more
likely to increase user satisfaction. This paper is probably the first attempt to analyse user satisfaction with all transport services
using comparative ordered response models. As a social indicator, the results of this study may provide a valuable evidence for
future sustainable transport policies in Turkey.
Keywords: satisfaction, ordered logit model, generalized ordered logit model, heterogeneous choice model, partial constrained

The paper considers some issues related to different approaches to estimation of transport and logistic(s) operations in supply
networks; analysis is made of the methods and models of analytical description of those operations; it is shown that the works under
consideration have no single approach to their accounting, which makes it impossible to form a model of a simple logistic network
including such basic operations as transportation and storage; based on the classical model of Harris-Wilson, six versions have been
obtained for a simple supply network showing, in particular, value added to the product price stemming from the previously performed
logistic operations as well as restrictions associated with the load capacity (cargo capacity) of the vehicle. The choice of an optimum
version of the supply network is made based on the criterion of minimum total costs; there are supplied the examples of calculations
for different versions of the developed models enabling estimation of the influence of transport and logistic operations on the efficiency
of the supply network.
Keywords: Logistics, transport, cost

In this work we consider a specific problem of optimal planning of maritime transportation of multiproduct cargo by ships
of one (corporate strategy) or several (partially corporate strategy) companies: the core of the problem consists of the existence of the
network of intermediate seaports (i.e. transitional seaports), where for every ship arrived the cargo handling is done, and which are
situated between the starting and the finishing seaports. In this work, there are mathematical models built from scratch in the form of
multicriteria optimization problem; then the goal attainment method of Gembicki is used for reducing the built models to a one
criterion problem of linear programming.
Keywords: Marine cargo transportation, mathematical modelling, multicriteria optimization, Pareto efficient solution, goal attainment
method, regularized solution
