ABSTRACT
The emergence of the phenomenon of globalization and global competition is not only a result of the developments in information technologies but also of logistic activities. With the effective use of the information technologies in the production and marketing processes of the businesses, the competition among enterprises has increased. Enterprises - in such a developed competitive environment- have recognized the importance of logistic activities in the point of minimizing their costs, supplying their products efficiently and quickly and also transporting these products to their customers at the same speed and efficiency. In this context, logistics has become one of the basic processes that the businesses emphasize importantly, ceasing to be support activity for the businesses. In this study in which the advantages provided by the logistic villages in the competition in question with the logistic activities' beginning to be seen as a means of competition will be evaluated, the effect of the establishment of logistic villages on increasing the mutual trade by examining the international trade figures carried out between Turkey and Italy in the last ten years and the cost advantages to be provided with the establishment of logistic villages by conducting a survey on many enterprises trading between the two countries are evaluated for enterprises. It is presented with current data that international trade volume will increase and logistic costs will decrease between two countries in consequence of the completion of logistic villages in Turkey.
