The article studies the conceptual approaches to the definition of the term "logistics". The present-day definitions of "logistisation", "logistics competence", "logistics potential", and “logistics management” have been considered. It has been proved that the conceptual apparatus requires systematization, in order to avoid duplication and unnecessary word formation, while the term of "logistics" should be defined on the base of the four approaches combined: as a way to control flow processes in the enterprise; as goal-oriented management; as the activities of supervision and control; as a special branch of scientific knowledge and professional expertise of logisticians.
