Abstract

Business co-operation is one of the ways in which companies perceive opportunities to improve their performance in reaching targets. One of them is the desire to increase the level of innovation of the co-operating entities, resulting in the creation and implementation of new product, process, organizational and marketing solutions. This issue also applies to companies providing a broad spectrum of logistics services, representing the TSL (transport-shipping-logistics) industry. These entities, despite their significant and continuous development in recent years, are still often characterized by a low level of innovation. Through acting on the market, they engage with a wide range of other entities in various types of activities that can be characterized by loose or permanent and formalized relationships. However, in analyses conducted up to date, little attention is paid to the area of co-operation between these companies and other entities while engaging in some innovative activity. Hence, the purpose of this article is to take a preliminary look at this issue and to show, on the basis of available data, the degree of co-operation between TSL enterprises in the area of innovative activity.
