The aim of the article is to present the results of research related to the assessment of the productivity of a manufacturing enterprise taking into account logistic processes. Verification of the method for assessing productivity in a food business was carried out. In this method, the partial indicators of productivity regard the efficiency of the use of individual logistic processes as inputs in manufacturing companies. The results have been presented in the article along with the conclusions. It was observed that logistical processes have a relation to productivity. Changes in the company’s logistics processes caused changes in the productivity index.
