Social logistics has lately been frequently subject to research concerning management sciences. The subject matter of this paper is social sensitivity, which gave impetus for broad conversation on sources of social logistics. The authors concentrated on the need to fill the gap in competences of potential social logistics managers. Presented findings of pilot research conducted among teenagers became the vital condition to estimate competences required from young logisticians to work in socially important areas. It also gave valuable insight into relationships between different aspects of social sensitivity, which according to authors is a crucial trait of every social logistics manager.
