STUDY OF THE ORGANISATIONAL SCHEME IN A COAL COMPANY
Motivation: One of the most important elements in each organization is its organizational structure, which will undoubtedly largely influence the way the company is managed. There are many types of organizational structures that are subject to continuous transformation due to economic development and progressive globalization. As a result, classical organizational structures are less and less present, while indirect structures are more and more often appearing. Moreover, in order for modern enterprises to compete effectively in the market, they must reach for modern management concepts, and thus their organizational structure should be flexible. Undoubtedly, one of the main problems of each company is the proper organization of logistic activities that would be compatible with the company's goals. Therefore, when treating logistics as one of the functions of an enterprise, internal units that perform logistical tasks should be incorporated into the company's organizational structure.
Approach and results: The purpose of this article is, then, to show how logistics has been organized and integrated into the organizational structure in one of the most important coal companies in Poland. In order to achieve such a goal, JSW SA has been analysed in terms of the solutions applied for the last few years in the field of organization of the company, including in particular the position of logistics in its organizational structure.
Material and methods: The material of the paper has been taken from the review of online resources. The method of theoretical analysis has been used in the article.
Conclusions: In the analysed mining company, the impact of logistics development on the management of the company, i.e. centralization of logistics, was also noticed. Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa selected in its organisational structure a separate unit – Material Logistics Facility, which was later transferred into the Production Support Facility.
