Purpose. Transport logistics is a very important area of activity for an industrial enterprise. Therefore, the purpose of the article is to determine the role of transport logistics at the current stage of operation of an industrial enterprise for the production of upholstered furniture, as well as to consider the basic logistics principles and their scope. Methodology. In the course of the study, the methods of scientific search, statistical analysis, synthesis, elements of the theory of system modeling were used to study the role of transport logistics in the operation of the enterprise. Findings. As an object of consideration the authors selected an industrial enterprise, whose main activity is the production of upholstered furniture. The structure of the enterprise’s logistics system was developed and analyzed; the impact of transport logistics on the operation of the logistics chain was assessed. The option of using an innovative sales system based on the efficient use of transport logistics is proposed. The role, place and relevance of transport logistics as a subsystem of the logistics chain of this industrial enterprise were determined. The existing problems in the transport logistics of enterprises in this sector in the country require solutions due to the constant need to supply the channels with raw materials and semi-finished products, as well as distribution of manufactured products. The most important issue is the decision to determine the way of goods movement (produced upholstered furniture). This is the most acute problem faced in the delivery of products to the market. Originality. At the me-thodological level the role of transport logistics in the creation and functioning of the macrologistical system of enterprises of this type is formulated. The holistic approach to supplier relationship control, which allows you to link the supply strategy with its implementation, and enhances the participation of suppliers in the enterprise operation was developed. Practical value. The detailed study and analysis of possible ways to improve the transport and logistics activity opens up ways for the company to increase the overall efficiency of its production and business activities, since almost half of all costs incurred in logistics are transportation costs. And it is the proper use of transport logistics that allows for an enterprise to rationally manage its resources.
