Abstract Paper media in business are progressively replaced by electronic, and the time of receiving information is reduced. With the use of certain information and communication tools and technologies information in electronic form becomes available to all the interested parties almost instantly. In particular, due to this there occurs a need for effective management of information in electronic form (electronic information flows) in the company. This can be done within e-logistics (e-logistics), which is a subsystem of information logistics. This article investigates the term “e-logistics” and shows that at the moment there is no gene-rally accepted definition. It is proposed to distinguish the following main constituents in the term “e-logistics”: “Internet”, “Delivery”, “Information and communication tools and techno-logies”. In this paper, the author shows the layout of different definitions in the triangle of the concept of “e-logistics” regarding its main components. The article proposes the approach to the evaluation of the company’s e-logistics development, which can be used in different enterprises of different areas. It is offered to evaluate the level of the company’s e-logistics with the corresponding complex indicator, which in itself accumulates information on the level of implementation of information and communication tools and technologies in the logistics system of the company. The proposed complex indicator allows the company management to receive a single number which reflects the level of development of e-logistics in the company and takes into account the number of aspects of its functioning.
