Project’s importance:

The right knowledge at the right place at the right time or in short: the logistics of knowledge more and more becomes the main competitive factor in the world. Distance learning and especially e-learning enable teaching and learning processes independently from time and place. This is an important contribution in order to achieve competitiveness – at any place in the world as well as in the Ukraine.

Ukrainian State pays a lot of attention to the development of distance learning. In 2000 Ministry of higher education and science of Ukraine (MHES) developed and confirmed the concept of distance learning in Ukraine. Cabinet of ministers of Ukraine on 23 September 2003 adopted decree № 1494 «Program on distance learning system for 2004-2006». According regulation was developed and confirmed on distance learning (order MHES Ukraine № 40 from 21.01.2004).

Quality Control and Monitoring:

  • Corporative opinion – annual program contents approval with supporting companies.
  • Questionnaire – independent study of education results.
  • New orders from business.


  • Using the achievements in the different functional spheres of logistics, i.e. purchasing, transport, distributive, industrial and information laid in the basis of distance training courses in management which were developed during the VETLOG Project and presented in the monograph. We hope that our experience gained in cooperation with foreign partners will be useful for the wide circle of specialists in transport, distributive, maritime field and to the students and aspirants of transport high education facilities.

 The outcomes of the VETLOG project has helped to introduce the culture of e-learning training on logistics in line with European standards and adopted to Ukrainian situation as well as strengthen the international cooperation capacity of national partners with further European recognition, Mykola Dmitriyev, 1st Vice-rector, Professor, National Transport University.
