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that revise existing regulatory norms of old economic processes, the author suggests that there is no need to copy outdated standards.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 topicality of the paper is defined by the world trends of economic development accompanied by the growth of urban population and the formation of agglomerations. Moscow agglomeration has a leading development potential among others.

Uncoordinated and unbalanced policies of various government agencies and monopolies as well as business structures can lead to irrational expenditure of investments and negatively affect the public interests: environment, level of prices for consumer goods and services, level of service, imbalance of labor market, aggravation of problems related to the labor migration. In long-run perspective it may lead to a slowdown or even a reduction in the gross regional product.

The article considers main stages of urbanization, models of urban environment development (functional distribution of infrastructure), spatial development of agglomerations (mono- and polycentric agglomerations), and main risks associated with the development of Moscow agglomeration according to the adopted model.

The work focuses on the necessity to clarify the boundaries of the Moscow agglomeration when the interests of nearby territorial entities are under consideration and projects of logistics and manufacturing infrastructure development are planned.

Based on the program and reports it was evaluated the effectiveness of remedies to develop Moscow agglomeration implemented by state and municipal authorities. As well, it was analyzed the potential impact of remedies on the interests of industries and social spheres that are related to the implementation of these projects.

In particular, it is shown the data on the level of development and geographical distribution of regional warehouse infrastructure, the provision of freight rail infrastructure, the problem with staffing issues in the logistics sector and the migration situation in the Moscow region.

The conducted research confirms the necessity to elaborate transport and logistics system in Moscow agglomeration taking into account all risks associated with side-effects of the program.

There are some key conclusions are received in the article among which: 1) it is required to coordinate programs on the level of the whole agglomeration and industries whose performance indicators reflect the decisions made; 2) the transport and the logistics system of Moscow agglomeration should be developed taking into account all risks associated with the side-effects of the program; 3) the second proposition can be realized via the creation of a center responsible for the development of various agglomerations; 4) the center mentioned in the point three should include not only state and municipal authorities, but also science and business in order to coordinate programs at different levels, provide methodical support and collect data which will be used to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of projects.

Transport is the defining link of the modern civilization infrastructure. In this regard, it becomes relevant to assess the expected efficiency of including railway transport in the region’s logistics systems. Three main approaches to the evaluation of the efficiency of the railway transport participation in the region transport systems have been considered in the article. Primary assessment of the region transport system’s potential has been singled out on the basis of indicators reflecting social, technical, temporal and economic properties of an efficient transport system. There is no unified methodology of large state investment transport projects effectiveness assessment. However, the considered methods used in the complex will allow obtaining a fairly accurate estimate based on the multistep analysis, the options of which are given in this article. The study revealed that a preliminary state assessment of the regional transport system and assessment of the transit potential of the territory are the key elements of the introduction of a large-scale, costly investment project to include railway transport in the region transport system. Carrying out an assessment of the region transport system potential enables to observe the principle of innovation. As a result, the article systematizes significant indicators for assessing the transport potential of the region. Usage of such indicators will allow to assess the efficiency and profitability of the introduction of a new railway capital investment project of extending the Trans-Siberian Railway to the Korean peninsula and its incorporation into the system of transport corridors of the country; to receive information about the volumes of railway transportation on the main segments of transit traffic “Europe-Asia” direction; to evaluate the efficiency of cargo transportation regarding time costs; to analyze the demand for a railway project on the international market; to assess the impact of project implementation on the railway freight market and on the scale of the country’s economy as a whole.
