Key Features

Transit is a very important part of the global international economy, encompassing the logistics system and managing the strategic activities of transport companies. The principles of strategic management in the logistics business on a global scale are becoming increasingly important. This is also important in the case of Lithuania, especially in the current conditions, organizing, managing and resolving political and economic issues in order to find the most optimal solutions and ensure the freight transport logistics chain not only in Europe but also globally. 

However, it should be noted that supply chain management in international business strategies also implies an innovative technological connection dictated by the global world. For the time being, there is a lack of transport market operating systems based on the application of both innovative technologies and other methods that would help to solve the problems of managing the international logistics business and its strategic solutions. 

The paper plans to evaluate the latest logistics business management strategies, and the application of innovative technologies in solving the problem areas of supply chain management, based on targeted research in the context of the logistics and transport market. The work would analyse, discuss theoretical and practical solutions, and conduct research related to strategic business management in logistics markets, taking into account the multicultural development context.

The selected candidate of the Strategic management in logistics businesses programme from Vilnius Gediminas Technical University will work on the PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof. dr. Aldona Jarašūnienė The successful applicant will have to attend scientific conferences, meetings and internships in the other universities.
