The market of medical equipment presented in most cases by foreign-made goods is growing fast. It requires considering the peculiarities of logistics services under the conditions of the medical equipment utilization by medical preventive institutions. The problem is particularly acute for high-tech medical equipment sector. It is shown that the fundamental principles of the order cycle management are unchanged in the case of reverse logistics as well. However the specific material flow managed will lengthen order cycle. Moreover it will have the impact on the complexity and workload of logistics operations. The traditional definition of transactional and post transactional services, which was reflected in the choice of the set of indicators, requires a thorough application. It is especially true for the performance evaluation of services splitted in time-horizon.
The paper is devoted to a new formal approach to logistics service development optimization in the wholesale business. Logistics service development is required to choose strategic direction of customer service in logistics, to identify key performance indicators of its implementation, and ultimately to make a choice of logistics services package. To solve these problems taking into account the preferences of decision-maker, it is suggested to use the analytic hierarchy process (AHP).
It is a first time that AHP has been employed several times within an optimization model: the approach worked-out consists of two stages. The first stage determines an optimal set of key performance indicators to control the strategic direction of logistics under consideration. The second stage identifies an optimal logistics services package taking into account its impact on the key indicators selected at the first stage.
The approach application is exemplified by a wholesaler that supplies foreign components to domestic manufacturers. Numerical solutions of AHP are shown in the article. The data for calculations are taken from statistical reports of the company at hand.
The purpose of the work is to draw attention to the existing hidden reserves of increasing the efficiency of systems, in which solutions for their optimisation are associated with the analysis of models of problems of the theory of queueing networks (for example, problems of transport support for the supply of multiple orders). We are talking about such models that correlate precisely with the choice of queueing the existing portfolio of orders. Approaches to the optimisation of such systems are considered, allowing to consider the random nature of the change in the rates of fines over time and special additional costs related to the moment of order set formation.
The objective of this book is to develop the sustainable and lasting skills of translator's competence and to build up translation categorial strategy.
Integrated planning implementation is concerned with some costs, but what about benefits? This article covers the subject of calculation of economic impact of integrated planning. Proposed method suggests to consider interdependence of supply chain KPIs, and start measuring them at the early stages before implementation. This will help to avoid only qualitative estimates, but apply specific quantitative ones as well.
It is difficult to imagine operations of companies without understanding of how to manage services accomplishment, especially logistics services. Policy of customer service management is determined by the interaction of two key departments of the company, one of which (Marketing) is responsible for image-building of product and marketeer choice, the other of which (Logistics) is accountable for supply of goods to customer and provision of logistics services with logistics 7R ensuring optimal conditions for the functioning of supply chains.
The article presents a critical analysis of various points of view on different levels strategies, showing their interconnection within the company. Special focus is paid to the relation between the basic corporate strategies and functional strategies of the company (marketing strategies and logistics strategies). As well, the ways of their translation into the logistics activities in the field of customer service is analyzed.
The paper critically examines 21 different sources that meet purposes mentioned above. Critical analysis of marketing and logistics interference, various levels and types of strategies is intended to derive linkage between existing findings supporting the reflection of the strategic company directions in customer service policy in terms of logistics.
In the article it is revealed the benefits of evolving a strategic approach of logistics services management for clients and suppliers. It is proposed to begin approach elaboration from the planning of possible potential strategies of company’s development. That is why remarkable attention is paid to the consideration of basic corporate and functional strategies, defining the possibility of their joint implementation in the company. Detected logical link between corporate, marketing and logistics strategies allows us to specify prior steps and common activities for customer service policy development within the logistics department of the company.

The report examines the problems of managing return flows, taking into account the modern requirements of urban ecosystems and the companies’ de-velopment strategies. Various approaches to multicriteria optimization of the config-uration of the return flow logistics network to find a balance between economic effi-ciency and sustainability of a city are discussed
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
The paper examines the principles for the supervision of financial conglomerates proposed by BCBS in the consultative document published in December 2011. Moreover, the article proposes a number of suggestions worked out by the authors within the HSE research team.
