Geographic information systems (GIS) are systems for capturing, storing, checking, integrating, manipulating, analyzing and displaying data which are spatially referenced to the Earth. GIS are interconnected hardware, software, data, people, organizations, and institutional arrangements.
It may seem obvious that GIS has something to offer logistics. Logistics is mainly concerned with issues surrounding the transportation or transmission of materials, services and information across geographic space. There are some impressive GIS tools designed for analyzing and managing transportation systems. These include network routing (particularly traveling salesman, vehicle routing, and related procedures) and facility location algorithms.
At the study subject will be discussed – Fundamentals of GIS – Spatial data -Spatial data modeling – Editing spatial data – Data analysis – Network analysis – Maps as output
The primary purpose of the study subject is to understand the theoretical basis and practical applicability of GIS in logistics and transport.

Human resource management is the process of understanding the relationships between individuals, tasks, organization and influencing on them. It is a mix of various programs and activities with which we want to achieve that the work is successfully completed to the satisfaction of the individual, organization and society.
In this course you will learn about the importance of human resource management, human resource strategy, management of external and internal environment, planning and personnel selection, development and training of employees, employee rewarding and evaluating the work and results, psychological contract, employee satisfaction, commitment, communication and with the inherent relationships in the organization.
The acquired knowledge will help you in entering the labour market, the development of your own careers and the functioning in the organization in terms of cooperation with co-workers and their management.

Development and importance of warehouse systems in the transport-warehouse logistics function.
Material flow – warehouse as a queuing system (warehouse volume and throughput capacity).
Warehouse operations – receiving, process customer orders, order-picking, checking, packing, put away.
Warehouse management systems – receiving and shipping, stock locator system, features, market supply.
Storage and handling equipment – storage equipment, transporters, sorting equipment etc.
Types of forklifts – due to their working principles, drive motors, carrying capacity, bearing strength.
Transportation handcarts – classical, autonomous, folding, assembling – special handcarts, inductive guided etc.
Transport unit loads – pallets, boxes etc.
Protection of goods and safety manipulating and safety managing with transport devices.
Warehouse strategies as a support to the warehousing processes (the system for managing-ordering of transport, the application of ABC system with the storage of goods).
Order picking – types, equipment, zones.
Design of warehouse systems – storage rack systems, construction of the warehouse, shape optimisation.
Need for implementing external logistics service – “outsourcing”.
In the course English in logistics 2 we will further develop business language and communication skills in the field of logistics, with the focus being on supply chains and international exchange of goods and services. Lectures will be dedicated to developing writing, speaking, listening and reading skills through the exploration of authentic materials and case studies. Special attention will be paid to written business correspondence and negotiating in English. Language and communication skills will be developed in the framework of the following topics: company structure and management, supply chains, international exchange of goods, and sustainable transport and logistics.
Related to the topics discussed in the course English in logistics 2, we will also revise and further develop knowledge and use of fundamental grammatical structures, including active and passive voice, common noun + preposition and common verb + preposition combinations, direct and reported speech, and conditional clauses.
Vocabulary and skills gained in this course will prove useful to students who will engage in business communication in organisations involved in international supply chains.
