Abstract

The construction materials market is characterized by the specificity of its products and the high seasonality of sales associated with it. Bearing in mind the essence of logistics, which is the delivery of the right product, in the right quantity, to the right customer, at the right time and place and in the state consistent with the order, seasonality disturbs the proper implementation of logistics processes.

Due to the seasonality of sales of construction products, logistics in units dealing with them should be organized in a way that takes into account seasonal fluctuations.

The purpose of this article is to indicate the phenomenon of seasonality in the sale of construction materials and analysis of the possibilities that will allow the correct organization of logistics processes taking into account this seasonality.
