The paper presents selected aspects of the application of information technology to support the implementation of logistics processes. The general discussion about optimization logistics processes precedes basics of designing procedure for logistics systems of different scale which are the foundation for three examples of applications tailored for micro-, and mezo-scale logistics systems. Applications are presented and discussed as tools to optimize logistics processes in aspect of their simultaneous usage to create advanced and comprehensive planning tools. Presented tools enable not only the design of selected elements of the logistics system but also allow assessing their effectiveness. An example of the possible use of applications LogMND to support shaping and dimensioning of point and linear logistic network elements and SCHED to support designing warehousing processes are given.
