Abstract. The complex and turbulent economic situation in the world requires an assessment and understanding of the current economic conditions and processes in logistics, which are characterized by institutional and technological innovations that are not fully predictable for assessing the long-term behavior of the economic system. In the context of the cyclical nature of economic development, as well as in the current crisis situation of the world economy, the need to assess the total logistics costs and the role of planning the effective use of limited resources in order to form intellectual assets that increase the competitiveness of enterprises, supply chains and the national economy are increasing. Of particular interest are the areas of economic discussion and the development of adequate and equitable rules for interaction between economic agents in organizing and managing streaming processes. At the same time, the current penetration of digital technologies accelerates these processes of economic activity and human functioning, creates management risks, which requires the search for a new paradigm for the development of logistics within the framework of institutional-evolutionary economic theory. Interactions between economic agents today are moving to a new digital level, which is characterized by new forms and principles of relations, as well as increasing transaction costs associated with the search for information, negotiations, maintenance of contractual obligations, opportunistic behavior, and the future development of logistics is moving into the digital area of ​ ​ the information space of automated algorithms for business, for the population and state authorities, ensuring the integration of internal production, business and other processes. An important tool for using a logistic and systemic approach in the rapid development of information and communication technologies is the formation of a new institute of digital logistics, which defines the basic principles and rules for organizing streaming processes.

Keywords: digital logistics, institution, adaptive coordination of inter-organizational interaction, modeling, institutional-evolutionary economic theory, innovation, rational-evolutionary approach.
