Abstract: This paper presents a theoretical analysis and it starts with an introduction which covers the research problem, object, purpose, and the research methods. The analysis revealed that the market situation presently faced by meat sector producers in Lithuania is significantly different from that years ago. The role of logistics in the development of the meat sector has been steadily increasing with the supply chains having become longer and more complex. The gradual reduction of cross-border trade barriers results in increasingly tough competition. Unlike their competitors from other countries, Lithuanian farmers and agricultural companies are not able to offer fast and low-cost delivery of meat products. The key object of this article deals with the development of the meat sector in Lithuania. The main purpose of the article is to systemize and comprehensively describe knowledge and information derived from a large number of sources about the concept of logistics, its role in agricultural sector, and the development of the meat sector, to present a consistent overview of different aspects of logistics in agriculture, including the supply chain management, third party logistics, and meat sector development
