The article presents matters related to the branch as an object of economic research. The logistic service branch is a detailed object of analysis, examined as an economic mesosystem. The purpose of the article is to present dependences taking place between elements of this mesosystem, namely the domestic economy, and companies from the logistic branch as well as how these dependences affect the quality and the competitiveness of provided services. In addition, the article brings closer self-regulation models of the logistic services market with particular focus on the impact of the evolutionary economics trend. Participants of the logistic service market are also presented, emphasizing the market’s modular structure and this structure’s configuration in Poland. Considerations on the impact of contemporary general economic trends on mechanisms regulating the branch also take a significant place as does the behavior of particular elements of this mesosystem.
