 The article is devoted to the preparation for the digital transformation of the international air cargo terminal, carried out in order to increase the volume of air cargo and mail processed at the airport at the terminal complex. The process of digital transformation is a process of reengineering. It affects all the functional components of the company, without exception, and, first of all, management. It is important to determine in advance what threats the new management brings to the company, what competitive advantages the terminal can potentially gain as a result of digital transformation, what can serve as the basis for successful reengineering, and what management, technological, and technical issues are subject to special attention. The article discusses the technological and organizational aspects of the cargo airport which can serve as a potential basis for successful transformation. The authors discuss in detail the new key business processes of digital service management at the terminal of companies in the Agency and forwarding environment. We consider options for building these processes based on the integration of services of the cargo terminal digital platform, the principles of implementing Omni-channel digital management of the processes of organizing air cargo transportation at an international airport.

The article deals with topical issues of digital transformation of air cargo transportation. It should help the air transport market to stop emerging threats and take advantage of new technologies for digital management of new business processes in a timely manner. The binder of the functional link between the forwarding network and an airline is a cargo terminal. The technological processes performed by the terminal and other subjects of the aviation supply chain as well as their compliance with the existing legal field, are analyzed. The uniqueness of the aviation cargo terminal functionality in the Russian Federation is emphasized. It is concluded that it is possible to create a digital platform for cargo terminal to organize fundamentally new business processes for managing air cargo transportation using data in digital form.
The result of the digital transformation should be the transformation of the international air cargo terminal into a «digital freight forwarder» – a «digital aggregator» of international air transport and related services. The article deals with a pilot project of a promising digital platform: transformation of the cargo terminal's work with Agency and subagent companies on the complex organization of international Express cargo shipments by air and combined (aviation- automobile) transport to individuals and legal entities.

The article deals with a number of problems that arise during digital transformation of transport and logistics processes.


The study of the problems of forming new business processes for managing transport and logistics segments of the market in modern conditions of the digital economy is extremely relevant. The emergence of a new industry-digital logistics requires creation and implementation of adequate organizational and methodological approaches, both on the part of the state and business. With obvious threats of control loss, the potential for national digital logistics is huge. 


Considering processes of supply chain management from the point of view of transport forwarding, the author makes a conclusion about the need for an adequate response of domestic logistics to the rapidly changing forms of the market. Special attention is paid to the issues of digital transformation of the industry, the study of global and domestic experience in implementing digital economy technologies in real transport and logistics business processes.  New technologies and mechanisms of digital transformation are global, they concern the whole world, all segments of the economy. Exploring the experience of creating new digital agendas that revise existing regulatory norms of old economic processes, the author suggests that there is no need to copy outdated standards. The idea of advanced localization of modern world trends in order to meet the new economic paradigm is formulated.  The author concludes that insufficient attention is paid to creating the necessary innovative climate to support advanced ideas in the first place, and not only implemented business projects.  The article emphasizes that new management services for digital transformation can only be designed with integrated competencies.

 The article is devoted to the consideration of several organizational and methodological issues of creating a digital platform for the transport complex, concerning the problems of analysis and accounting for risks that arise when integrating competencies for the formation of information and logistics services. The issues that the authors explore in this article are highly relevant when creating digital services on the transport platform based on the integration of several technological products belonging to different owners.  Detailing possible risks is necessary for their subsequent mitigation by the organizational and technological infrastructure of the digital platform.


The authors consider the relationships that arise between the fundamental elements of the digital platform: the basic product of the platform, digital services and their sales processes. Various categories of the basic product, an intangible asset, without which a complex of digital services cannot be built within the digital platform, is analyzed. The study examines the dependence of an intangible asset on the assets of tangible and human carriers of this asset, as well as the risks that arise in this case.


The research is based on the methodology of conceptual analysis of designing complex socio-economic forms and organizational structures, which was successfully tested when creating the aerocity information and logistics center at Sheremetyevo international airport.


The use of the methodological approach outlined by the authors allows minimizing the risks that arise during the development of digital services by developing appropriate contractual forms and technologies that make up the digital platform repository, as well as selecting appropriate organizational and legal mechanisms for creating functional components of the transport platform.  a recommendation is given for creating an innovative center of the digital platform in the organizational and legal form of a non-commercial partnership with purpose of effective practical integration of competencies.

Success of any logistics enterprise in the context of digital economy progress directly depends on regular and effective innovations in the area of improving analytical applications and information systems in such actively developing fields of knowledge as strategic management, distribution networks development, and supply chain management. In an attempt to ensure a sustainable economic circumstance under conditions of strong competition, the most perspective companies are increasingly focusing on the development and introduction of modern methods and tools for intelligent data analysis. The article focuses on the consideration of issues related to the use of modern simulation approaches and such components of the soft computing concept as neural networks, fuzzy logic and evolutionary computations in solving problems of multifunctional logistics and supply chain management.
