Efficiency in transport logistics can be evaluated from several aspects: From the point of view of the service provider, from the perspective of the customer, or that of the government and from the point of view of sustainability. Efficiency will always mean approximately the same thing but emphasis might shift from the strictly financial aspect to the social and environmental side as the perspective is changed. Based on international research findings and European level projects the first part of the paper attempts to clarify the definition of efficiency and highlight the scientific fields, methods and methodologies within the boundaries of transport logistics which contribute to efficiency.
