Lecturers gave lectures to undergraduate and postgraduate students of Logistics Management and Logistics Engineering study programmes.

Students were introduced to the concept of logistics, the actors involved in logistics and the supply chain, and the similarities and differences between these concepts. The components, processes and activities of logistics were discussed using practical examples. The practical exercises analysed the supply chain of a product when transport is carried out using all modes of transport. Students were given an example of a real transport company to show how the ABC cost accounting method could be used to calculate and evaluate company performance. This ABC cost accounting methodology can be integrated by the Master’s students in their research, projects and final theses. A comparative analysis of transport and storage services sector indicators was also presented, assessing the Lithuanian and Polish markets and looking at their position in the European Union. During the lectures, students took part in knowledge tests using Kahoot and Mentimeter software. The best students were awarded gifts from Lithuania.

Lecturers from the Department of Business and Public Management took part in the International Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day Conference, where they got acquainted with maps in various fields and carried out practical tasks related to the application of the programme in the field of transport.

Further cooperation opportunities for faculty and student exchanges, joint publications and participation in international conferences were discussed with faculty members of the Faculty of Economics, Finance and Management of the University of Szczecin. Much attention was paid to the presentation and discussion of the Erasmus+ CIP Intensive Programme “Green Business”.
