ABSTRACT
The status of the European Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Institute of Logistics and Transport is analyzed. During the various discussions concerning the changes to the institute's internal structure, it was often stated that Europe is so central to logistics and transport, permeating all aspects of day-to-day operation of the supply chain, that it was now a given. The aim of the SIG is to promote knowledge of the cultural, economic and operation traditions and expectations that still affect the member states of the European Union, such that members of the institute involved with cross-border trading and logistics operations can operate with understanding, competence and confidence, without prejudice and fear of being prone to errors. It has also been made clear over the past year that the SIG, in partnership with the Public Affairs Policy Committee, has a welcome and real part to play in reporting to and acting as an independent sounding board for the European Commission.
