First part of the analysis covers the theoretical overview of competencies, the definition of competencies, their components and categorization. Our primary goal of the analysis was comparison between competencies of logistics experts in commercial companies and in transport companies. A comparison was based on the theoretical knowledge and the completed surveys in Slovenian commercial and transport companies. In preparation of the theoretical part we have analysed, studied and compared the existing domestic and international professional literature. In preparation of empirical part of the analysis we have made comparison from the existing questionnaires. Through analysis of the results we found out that logistics experts in commercial companies mainly obtained their skills at their workplace, extra educations mainly from the companies initiatives and that those competencies that are assessed as more important are more frequently used at the workplace. For logistics experts in transport companies we have concluded that they use general and work-specific competencies in their everyday work routine, which together with their knowledge were mostly gained through experience in the workplace.
