Contemporary  supply chains operate under the pressure of customer requirements,  increasing price competition, sudden increases or decreases in demand,  unforeseen obstacles and new threats. The right way to improve the  functioning of the flow of material and accompanying information is not  only the continuous collection of data but also their collection,  analysis, inference and decision-making with the use of decision support  systems, expert systems and artificial intelligence. Such procedures  make it easier for logisticians not only to forecast processes but also  to predict (forecast) and identify potential problems and facilitate the  implementation of optimal modern solutions, paying attention to current  trends in the supply chain market. 

An important  issue that affects the quality, efficiency and availability (continuity)  of the processes implemented within the supply chain is security. This  is an area that is not clearly defined. This book uses theoretical and  practical knowledge to define security in the supply chain as a state  that gives a sense of certainty and guarantees the flow of material  goods and services (in accordance with the 7w rule) as well as a smooth  flow of information for the planning and management of logistics  processes. Tools and instruments used to ensure the security of the  supply chain contribute to the protection and survival in times of  dangerous situations (threats) and adaptation to new conditions  (susceptibility to unplanned situations). 

When  analyzing the needs and structure of the 21st century supply chains, in  the context of their security, it is impossible to ignore the problem of  their digitization, which enables the determination of optimal routes  and the anticipation of possible threats (crisis situations). Automatic  data exchange between various departments of the company along the upper  and lower part of the supply chain improves the functioning of the  warehouse management through, among others, automation, robotization and  pro-activity. It also contributes to efficient, good communication and  market globalization. Automation also brings new, extremely attractive  business models with regard to occupational safety, ergonomics and  environmental protection. To meet the needs of creating modern supply  chains, the book analyzes and presents current and future solutions that  affect security and the continuity of supply chains.
