Sažetak

Logistics is a scientific discipline, a business function and an activity that, in recent times, is increasingly being applied to economic and social activities, because it enables the production of a quality product at a moderate cost. With regard to the trend for globally applying the principles of logistics to all spheres of human activities, the phenomenon of tourism presents a special challenge. Moreover, it is becoming evident that a quality tourism product, the design of which is linked to a tourism destination, depends largely on the scale of optimisation of all flows (goods, people, information, energy, waste, capital and knowledge) within a destination.
The purpose of this paper is to define the function of logistics in tourism and in a tourism destination. Also defined are the concepts of tourism logistics and tourism destination logistics, the concept of a tourism logistics system and its elements – subsystem, as well as logistics processes - chains. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of optimising logistics processes in a destination, in which logistics management and process management are indispensable.
