This paper analyzes three important elements for improving logistics performance
in supply chains. The first important component of the supply chain refers to the
reduction of traffic, correspondence and communication lines, the second refers to the
process of balancing by layers of the activities and the third important component relates to
micro processes of differently balanced states of units to generate the best compositions.
Factors in terms of control are of strategic, tactical and operational level, the application of
which increases the effectiveness and efficiency of logistic systems. This paper pays attention
to the factors of efficiency in logistics centers, i.e. in processes and operations as a
function of compositional equilibrium of status and location changes of loading units.
