This study aims to investigate the level of logistical coordination and the state of coordination mechanisms in procurement activities among enterprises involved in supply chains. The research was conducted through a comparative analysis of statistical data obtained from a survey of businesses between July and October 2021.The study proposes a method for identifying general and individual performance indexes for partner companies' interactions by examining joint planning, synchronized documentation, coordinated operational procedures, and resource integration. This method is relevant to both logistics theory and the practical activities of supply chain participants. The research highlights the evolution of metrics used to evaluate the extent of coordination mechanisms employed by businesses in their procurement activities. Based on the selection criteria, an assessment scale is proposed to determine the level of logistical coordination in supply chain companies' procurement activities. The findings offer insights into the development of coordination mechanisms for organizations across various sectors (industrial, trading, freight forwarding), focusing on their scientific significance and impact on the competitiveness of consolidated supply chains. This study contributes to the literature by providing a comprehensive understanding of logistical coordination and coordination mechanisms in procurement activities among supply chain enterprises, as well as offering a practical assessment scale for evaluating logistical coordination levels.
