Systemic conditions of efficiency and durability of road transport enterprises

Andrzej Letkiewicz , Michał Suchanek


The basic condition for the proper configuration of inputs and outputs in a transport company is the ability to optimise, build, and implement a strategy based on carefully selected components of the information and decision-making system, capable of taking into account the different optimisation criteria for each level and of gathering and generating information useful in the process of developing a strategy. Within this system, IT tools that increase the efficiency of the technical dimension of decision-making processes are useful. For Polish road transport companies, economically speaking, the basic input and output record-keeping systems are accounting systems, used by nearly 89% of the surveyed entities. In the operational context, 58% of the entities declare using resource management systems. Nearly 18% of the companies possess a formal strategy.
