 Using the example of international road carriers, we consider approaches to assessing the complex indicator of competitiveness. Based on a sample of the performance results of the best transport companies from different countries, a comparison is made, and the factors that influence the change in indicators are determined. The best indicator values are set, which can serve as a guide for international road transportation companies. Based on the analysis of road transport performance indicators in the EEU countries, it was revealed that there are differences in the development of this type of activity, but all countries are characterized by an unsatisfactory state of the vehicle fleet. The change of generations of equipment in road transport is characterized by a short period, which is only 4 years, with an average change of 8-10 years. Problems with updating the car fleet lead to the fact that six generations of vehicles are simultaneously operating on the market. The paper offers a tool for determining the gap at the level of a country or individual enterprise from the market leaders.

 The article deals with the issues of market regulation in the new conditions of the EAEU development and expansion of economic relations with other countries. The development of international road transport is considered on the example of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan. It is noted that these countries take a significant share of the Union's GDP and play a leading role in the transport of goods and passengers. The analysis of transport systems in Russia and Kazakhstan showed that countries pay great attention to transport infrastructure, however, issues of transport organization and management of transport resources are a weak link. The task is to transform not only the transport systems of each member of the EEU, but also to create a unified transport system.
The formation of a Common market and the transition to a Single market for transport services requires the development of new effective regulatory mechanisms. The ecosystem of digital transport corridors being developed in the EEU can become one of the modern tools.
The article notes that the countries in question play a special role in ensuring transit traffic between China and European countries. China's accession to the TIR Convention and the signing of a new Agreement on international road transport between Russia and China create prerequisites for the growth of cargo traffic by switching cargo from other modes of transport to road transport. But it is not only China that should be the target market. Russia and Kazakhstan also connect other countries with Europe – Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan. In the future, transportation to India and Pakistan is possible (taking into account the accession of these two countries to the SCO Agreement). The creation of the export transport potential of the EEU will both strengthen its position in traditional markets and enable enter new markets of third countries. The use of the transport and economic balance method will allow to predict not only the development of infrastructure, but also the needs for vehicles considering specialization.

The analysis of scientific works devoted to the formation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) of transport services shows that the long-term path includes the consolidation of a number of basic (key) indicators, the definition of auxiliary indicators, as well as the definition of the company's place among competitors. It is possible to form the appropriate set of models for the calculation of following basic indicators. Productivity (for example, hourly productivity); time parameters (transport time, time for paperwork, time for loading and unloading, etc.); transportation costs (cost of transportation, loading and unloading, storage costs, return flow, etc.); reliability (probability of failure, sustainability of the process and time parameters). We are proposing the original two-level structure of a transport company performance indicators and the model for calculating KPI for assessment of various transport types, that can be used as a basis for development of software contributing to digitalization of transport services.
