Daily logistics processes and supply chains make up complex systems which can be affected by many factors (e.g., production technology, infrastructure, daily traffic, weather, or ad-hoc problems). As part of this research, an investigation was conducted to determine how such factors influence the daily material flow of enterprises in Zala County, one of Hungary’s 19 counties. With the help of qualitative sampling, we identified which variables affect logistics processes. As an initial step of the research, classic and modern trends of logistics software support were compared through a literature review. Results show that the lack of simulation forecasting is a serious deficiency for applied technologies. In the second part of this paper, we identify the measurable variables and their significance on future simulations with the help of a qualitative method. This research has been a precursor to our long-term research approach, in the scope of which company processes are modelled and subsequently improved through simulation
