Abstract

The article describes different inter-organisational relationships from the point of view of logistics, similarly to virtual organisations, and deals with virtual organisations in particular: Strategic networks, Virtual companies, Regional networks, Operative networks. Virtual companies have several advantages for the participating firms, however, they need a logistics solution different from other inter-organisational relationships. The possible solutions are presented here, which can give answers to the logistics problems of virtual companies which - as it will be presented later - are rather special. The paper focuses on the creation of supply chain of virtual companies.
