The process of managing logistics flows is one of the main factors influencing the increase of economic efficiency of production and sales.

The development of logistics information systems is a broad niche in the IT field. Application of logistic information systems in the process of management allows you to save money both on wages by the number of employees, and to accelerate the management process in a time interval.

Ukraine is the leading country for grain exports. Issues of grain transportation management are considered as an alternative to manual control.

The article will discuss issues related to the application of the designed information system "Logistics transportation" to develop an optimal plan for transportation of grain, which clarifies existing models of logistics flows management.

To solve the problem, the authors analyzed the existing methods of managing logistic flows: direct methods (northwest method, least cost method, potential method) and methods based on additional calculations. A mathematical model of the problem of logistic flow management is constructed. The initiation solution is executed on the basis of the potentials method with additional conditions implemented in the network representation. The advantage of the used method is that the resulting reference plan is close to optimal computing. Although direct methods get the initial reference plan very quickly, but it is far from optimal. The clarification of the solution of the problem occurs through a block of logical rules.

Practical verification of data is carried out on the example of Agrarian firm "Zernotreyd". During the verification, it was found that the chosen management method leads to an increase in efficiency by 4 %.
