    This paper proposes a research on the development of supply chain management processes in Romania. The main objective of the paper is to present an overview of the development level for logistics services market in Romania, by analyzing representative statistical data in the supply chain management domain. The research methodology focuses on collection of statistical data about Romanian logistics sector, especially from official data published by the INS, identifying key profile companies operating in Romania and analyze their development over the past five years, using indicators such as quantity of logistic spaces put into operation annual, occupancy rate, sale price / rental, logistics services for customers and other related services. This information are taken from the websites of the companies and from studies made public by consulting companies. The quality of the logistics services offered to customers by companies in Romania is being compared to the European average on various specific categories. In this respect, we used the logistic performance index that summarizes the statistical aspects of the supply chain management at national and international level, using a set of predefined criteria. The results of the research concern the positioning Romania in terms of logistics in relation to other European countries and propose solutions applicable to improving their quality. The preoccupation for identifying opportunities to improve the efficiency of supply chain management leads to analysis of information systems for supply chain management, which are designed to facilitate communication both between company departments and between it and its partners in the extended supply chain. Final remarks present the advantages of using such a system, and provide information regarding the supply and demand on the market in Romania.
