The scientific objective of the research paper is determining causation in the logistics and ensuring competitiveness of organizations. In addition, the supply chain is considered as a complete structural formula of planning, coordination, implementation and control of all activities related to a single supply chain. The core of this concept and thus defined supply chain to ensure efficiency in procurement and increase the organizational competitiveness. Chain of procurement incorporates all transfers of tangible and intangible resources necessary to produce a product or service then evaluate the market by customers. In scientific community there are some differences associated with differences between managing the supply chain and logistics. According to some authors, these terms are synonymous, while in others they are two different concepts, although there are some overlaps. Generally, logistics means a term broader scope. Despite these differences, the management of any organization in managing the supply chain must take account of: the network configuration (suppliers, scheduling of production facilities, distribution cantri, warehouses and customers) strategy distribution (centralized or decentralized, direct or indirect distribution), information flow (integrating information systems); managing inventory (quantities and locations of raw materials, semi-finished and finished products), cash flows, organizational structure and design (delegating authority and responsibilities within the supply chain). From this research and many years experience of working with small and medium organizations in Macedonia, confirming that logistics represents one of the key components that provides mutual competitiveness of the organizations, and the total Macedonian economy internationally.
