In recent years, e-commerce has been able to penetrate practically in all spheres of life of the population and in Ukraine. The domestic e-commerce market is only at the inception stage, but at the same time it has a significant potential for development. The Internet and related technologies continue to actively and effectively interfere with logistics. Modern logistics technologies are inextricably linked with intensive information exchange. Due to the timely receipt of information, high accuracy, speed and consistency of goods exchange in logistic chains are ensured. Over the past few years, the structure of the logistics space of the Internet has significantly changed, which was reflected in the transformation of the content of logistics-oriented sites. If advertising information dominated previously, now, often in interactive mode, organizational, reference and design services are presented. Business commerce, advertising, production and modern technologies of the Internet are all more vibrant in all strata of human life. Today, the penetration of Internet technologies into business and economics is growing rapidly. The Internet is now – a huge market with a multi-level structure with abyss of opportunities that has an incredible potential for solving problems and business. This penetration also affects logistics. Logistics technologies are unthinkable without intensive information exchange. It is owing to the timely receipt of information that provides high accuracy, speed and consistency of turnover in logistics chains. Therefore, logistics as a modern scientific and practical direction of commodity distribution is also rapidly mastering these technologies and in its own way is equipped on the network. The Internet as a technology of global open networks is the best means to attract a wide range of logistics service users. With the help of this technology can be provided: advertising company; providing a list of services and price lists; account of regular clients and companions; providing consumers with the necessary documents on a paid and free basis; interactive advisory service; counteragent search service; registries of logistics companies and the database of information and logistics resources in the network; electronic freight; monitoring of goods and vehicles; virtual agency and forwarding. Today, the process of accumulation of logistics resources in the Internet has reached a level that allows us to talk about the process of forming virtual logistics centers (commercial or conditional commercial). This, in turn, with further development, can form a single logistics information space on the Internet.
