It is noted that international road transport is one of the most overregulated types of economic activities that reduces the trucking companies efficiency and hinders the international trade. For many countries, especially landlocked, it creates additional barriers on access to world markets. The analysis covers the access of international road transport operators to the market in countries of Eurasia. The authors explore the transformation of the international road transport market. In particular, it is noted that the integration development is closely related to the mechanism of international road transport regulation. For example, the EEU deals with the process of road transport liberalization, which is multilateral in nature. At the same time, it is noted that typically in Eurasian countries agreements are mostly bilateral in nature, and with a number of countries such agreements do not concluded. This situation is an obstacle to further economic integration in Eurasia. For several logistics projects implementation, transit on the Eurasian territory it is advisable to develop harmonised bilateral agreements which provide different levels of liberalization that would allow moving gradually from one level to another. Also, the gradual transition from a bilateral to multi-party agreements is examined.
