Logistics is currently in the middle of several political, economic, environmental and infrastructure development changes, which are making it ever more complex. How is it affected by political and military conflicts – for example attacks on ships, which must now take longer routes? Of course, this is just one example of the conflicts impacting on logistics that is characteristic of today's world, which is in the throes of turning into a politically multipolar one. What does this mean for globalisation? There theories are countless, and they are in many ways contradictory.

Logistics is currently in the middle of several political, economic, environmental and infrastructure development changes, which are making it ever more complex. How is it affected by political and military conflicts – for example attacks on ships, which must now take longer routes? Of course, this is just one example of the conflicts impacting on logistics that is characteristic of today’s world, which is in the throes of turning into a politically multipolar one. What does this mean for globalisation? There theories are countless, and they are in many ways contradictory. The resulting uncertainty in logistics is quite considerable. On the other hand, logistics, which is rapidly becoming digitalised as it is compelled to become more efficient by the day, is affected by forces that require it to become increasingly carbon-neutral and environmentally friendly. This is a major challenge, also technologically. Playing to its advantage is the realisation of many countries that they have underinvested in infrastructure in the past, and the fact that a number of infrastructure projects are currently underway in Austria and Slovenia. In this year’s Moving Slovenia, experts and practitioners will try to answer these questions and share their experience that can help guide any modern logistics professional.
