Abstract

The thesis provides an innovative, comprehensive and structured path to understand how the analysed logistics phenomenon affects different economic aspects of economic growth. We aim to study the macroeconomic and microeconomic phenomena related to the goods and people flow. The thesis demonstrates the importance that the logistics sector on the variables that influence a nation-s growth and wealth. The thesis’ next step is the willingness to learn what are the internal factors that determine the performance of the entire logistics sector, and identify and figure out the key variables behind a decisive competitive advantage. The study would not be complete without a predominant parses the entire logistics sector sub-sector that is represented by the transport plane, then analyse the efficiency of the Italian airport sector and specifically the airports. Ultimately it was decided to insert a purely microeconomic and managerial study that providing a critical eye on what is the transposition of logistics inside the companies, an a critical analysis of the methods of "Supply Chain Management" and possible development factors due to supply chain inefficiencies.
