Theoretical Aspects of Development of Integrated Supply Chains in Trade

Introduction. Modern industry trade is characterized by a high degree of consolidation, as well as the growing share of modern retail formats. The establishment of an effective commodity sphere of trade on the basis of logistics, to meet the growing needs of the population, and the development of the ideology of integrated supply chains are particularly relevant. Theoretical analysis. The main types of logistics integration are an infrastructural, organizational and information, as well as social, financial, technological, physical (reorganization of logistics networks, spatial consolidation of logistics activities in the logistics distribution centers) and other types of logistics integration. The degree of integration is related to the volume of integrated information, the quality and speed of exchange of information flows, the harmonization of technical capabilities and processes. Each sector of the economy characterized by its own configuration of the supply chain, which is determined by the specifics of the upstream and downstream flows. A major role in the design of integrated supply chains plays a precise identification of upstream and downstream flows, indicating the quantitative characteristics. Results. Celebrated the union of all the existing infrastructure and the formation of their new common infrastructure based on integrated trading enterprise, whose main purpose is not only to make a profit, as any commercial enterprise, but also timely customer satisfaction. For the «start» mechanism of development of integrated supply chains in trade requires more organizational work related to the formation of the corresponding production, storage and trade infrastructure to «link» agricultural producers and trading companies, including the network.
