The main trend that we are now seeing is the negative perception of the role of forwarders as intermediary and redundant, which leads to an increase in the cost of logistics. The same goes for customs brokers. I clearly observe this negative trend. In general, our logistics is very expensive, because we have long distances between the main centers of production, regional centers.

The situation with education in the field of logistics is now better. Everyone rushed to study logistics, and each university began to train logisticians in its own way. We must first train the teachers of logistics, because now logistics are read by former economists, doctors of science, teachers with a degree. Practices, they are most often not gradual, but it is they who can transfer their valuable accumulated experience to students. And now we have pure theoreticians leaving our universities.
