Abstract

The decision-making process depends on up-to-date and accurate data. This makes the efficient information flow in both the enterprise and the supply chain a key aspect of decision making. The selection of IT tools supporting management and decision-making has a direct impact on the efficiency of information flow in the enterprise and supply chain. In this article Authors have focused on the subject of information flow efficiency by identifying basic integration problems in the supply chain. The presented research methodology takes into account both literature analysis and business practice research on the basis of research projects (national and international) carried out at the Institute of Logistics and Warehousing and Poznan School of Logistics in Poland.

The conducted research concerns a specific type of supply chain, which handles intermodal transport operations. The choice of the supply chain typology is based not only on the complexity of intermodal transport processes, but also on the timeliness of the problem, both in terms of research and business practice. The research also included an analysis of the possibility of using IT systems supporting information management in enterprises and supply chains.

Key words: information flow efficiency, intermodal transport, IT management systems
