Value of Company and Choice of Valuation Method for Forwarding Company
Authors: Eva Adámiková, Roman Chinoracký, Tatiana Čorejová, Grzegorz Dydkowski
Abstract:
The value of company is a very broad concept. Its determination depends on many factors and valuer must take into account both internal and external factors which are affecting the company. In some cases, it is very difficult to decide which of the methods should be used so that the entire valuation is not unnecessarily overpriced for the contracting entity. Valuation also takes into account the resulting objective value. In the case where the choice of method is not determined by the legal act itself, consultation and agreement with the expert is necessary in order to clarify the state of the company and determine the reason for doing the valuation itself. Therefore, the main goal of this paper is to choose an appropriate valuation method for a forwarding company.

Ecological Impact of Changes in Transport Organisation in Martin with Using Transport-Planning Software
Authors: Ján Palúch, Kristián Čulík, František Synák, Juraj Hammer, Jerzy Mikulski
Abstract:
Using motor vehicles, which uses fossil fuels, is connected with emissions. The main goal of cities, towns and also of the state is to keep these emissions as low as possible. Vehicles move on a traffic network where they are forced to accelerate and decelerate due to various impacts. Junctions and traffic jams are examples of these impacts. An important task is to build transport networks and junctions where vehicles can cross the junction as quickly as possible without unnecessary delay and a significant change in speed. This can contribute to lower vehicle fuel consumption and thus lower emissions.

Abstract:
In logistics the key problem of last mile is how to deliver goods from distribution hub to end users in cities and built-up areas. The paper deals with an issue of last mile delivery. The main objective of the paper is to analyse pos-sible solutions how to deliver consignments to end customers. To achieve the aim, we realized secondary research in which we identified seven basic delivery models. Some of the delivery models are traditional, but there are delivery models which are a matter of the near future. One of the most appropriate solutions how to enhance effectiveness in the process of last mile delivery is to take advantages of every identified delivery model. Results of the research also imply a comparison of delivery models.
