"DIGITALIZATION - competitive advantage today, crucial for the existence of your business tomorrow"

Did you know that an effective production supply can increase the production for up to 20%, and that an effective data exchange can significantly reduce delivery time and the costs of goods purchase up to 15 EUR per transaction?

Did you know that the online booking of a container can considerably shorten the administrative times in shipping?

Did you know that a customer has to cover an adequate share of costs in the event of marine casualties?

And did you know that there are cheaper ways of purchase than LCL (Less than Container Load) shipping?

These and many more questions will be answered at our 5th International congress »Supply Chain Management in Science and Practice 2017«, in Portorož.

In addition to presentations of recognised professionals, who will present the topics in the scientific and practical aspects, we will also encourage making new acquaintances and provide opportunities for co-operation.

It is our mission to invite speakers whose presentations will provide practical solutions. We are constantly in search of the best practices and of top managers and professionals illustrating them to us. And this will also be the case this year.

I welcome you to attend the next, 5th International congress »Supply Chain Management in Science and Practice 2017«, and I am looking forward to see you in Portorož.

Igor Žula,
President of Slovenian Logistic Association


We are committed to lectures based on the presentation of concrete solutions because we are fully aware that only these bring additional value.

The programme will be announced soon.


With its activities the Slovenian Logistic Association wants to encourage logistics and its activities and in this way contribute to the competitiveness of organizations and Slovenian economy as a whole. This strengthening and fostering the development of logistics in Slovenia are to a great extent a result of active and hard-working individuals’ efforts. It is therefore appropriate to recognise these individuals and their achievements, and to reward them and present them to a wider public.

This is the purpose of the PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR AWARD. It is an honourable award for the most successful logistic provider in Slovenia that achieved, with their knowledge and efforts, extraordinary results in logistics in the previous year. In 2017, the 12th competition will be launched - for the Professional of the Year 2016 Award.

More about award's history




”For years, a logistic congress is one of the pillars of professional gatherings which I attend in Slovenia as well as internationally. Every year, the congress addresses the most current logistic topics and the impact of logistics on other business functions in organizations. Carefully chosen topics include theoretical as well as practical knowledge. This is a place where experiences and ideas can be exchanged with acknowledged Slovenian and international experts from academia and economy.
I want to emphasize the aspect of socializing and networking, too, where in a relaxed atmosphere new business opportunities are born and long-term business connections and friendly relations are built.”
Aleš Lampret,
Director of logistics at Kemofarmacija, d. d. & Professional of the year 2014


”I attended the congress of logistics for the first time last year in Laško. It was a very positive surprise due to the width and quality of the topics which directly or indirectly influence the efficiency of logistic services. I recommend this event to everyone who wants an in-depth insight into how logistics is interwoven with other business functions and how this enhances the success of an organization and the satisfaction of its business partners.”
Leon Korošec,
Member of the Management board at Elan, d.o.o.

”Every organization pays the most intention to the manufacturing and quality of their products. But since the market is becoming increasingly more global, we also focus more and more on the ways to the customer to be as short, fast and safe as possible. By doing this, we obtain additional time for production and lower transport costs.”
Marjan Trobiš, CEO, Boxmark Leather d.o.o.
