The article is devoted to the topical problems of the wide development of the Arctic zone of the planet by the Russian Federation; these problems are of great importance in the context of increasing international competition and tightening economic sanctions against Russia by the EU, Canada and the United States. The prospect of a kind of revolution in global logistics has long attracted the attention of the Arctic States, whose borders are relatively far from the Arctic circle. We are talking primarily about China, India, Japan, South Korea, Singapore etc. (a total of 12 countries), that today have the status of permanent observers of the Arctic Council. The directions of scientific research and practical projects of these countries in the Arctic are analyzed.

In these circumstances, Russia faces the task of protecting the Arctic region as a national resource base and transport artery in an economically feasible way, relying on the capabilities of modern logistics. The current situation in the world requires our country, first of all, to strengthen its power capabilities in the Arctic region. However, this should be implemented with the help of innovative logistics technologies, seeking to improve the economic efficiency of the problem. Innovative Russian logistics technologies that can significantly enhance the competitive potential of Russia in the Arctic region are considered. The supply chain management (SCM) paradigm is proposed as a methodological basis which provides for the achievement of the intended result not only and not so much the intensive use of existing ones, but also the ability to constantly produce new competitive advantages. The authors ' proposals will contribute to the growth of domestic oil quotes in the European markets, to the activation of domestic and foreign investments in the construction of the Northern sea route, will strengthen the economic and national security of the country

In recent years, many countries face a challenge of outdated standards of using weight and size control systems in the field of freight transport. The article considers a successful example of the application of high-speed weigh-in-motion (WIM) technology in Russia, which reflects its viability for the vehicle size and weight (VSW) enforcement elsewhere in other countries. The paper gives the basic idea of systemimplementation in terms of using the WIM technology in US and countries of EU. It analyzes the current problems, such as insufficient integration between different actors fulfilling the WIM technology, policy and funding issues. The realization of this technology is based on the separation of the necessary investments between the government and the private sector, which requires a high level of cooperation, and generates the favorable effect for the enforcers, WIM-vendors, and society, as a whole. The framework of the article encompasses primary stages of the system’s endorsement: overview, planning and implementing, policy uncertainties, economic perspective, and the role of private sector. 

The results of this study bridge the gap in understanding the fundamental issues in the field of the application of dynamic vehicle weight and dimension control systems in Russia, and can be utilized by stakeholders or local authorities.
