Logistics is a top field of the industrial science in our days. Because of this situation the education and research activity on this field play very important role in the advanced economical processes.
At the Department of Materials Handling and Logistics of the University of Miskolc activities on the field of logistics have been doing for decades related to the education and also the research sides. Our results were generally presented on international conferences and published in different magazines and books.
At this point we think that it is time to start an own, reviewed serially publication to present our works and of course this book can also give possibility to our international partners to publish their important and advanced research results in it.
I hope that our initiative will be successful, the new serially publication will reach high volume number and will present many new, advanced and useful research results in the field of logistics.
