Abstract. This paper focuses on morphological patterns of logistics term formation in English and Bulgarian terminology concentrating mainly on derivation. The analysis and conclusions reached relate to a detailed exploration into the English and Bulgarian logistics terminological systems with regard to the tendencies in their development. It applies a comparative approach on the basis of the principles of synchronicity and systematicity when relating English terms to their Bulgarian equivalents and discusses the meanings of the most productive prefixes and suffixes recurrent in them. The findings can be relevant when teaching English for Logistics.
