Carrying out practical calculations on existing methods is hindered by the fact that a large number of factors should be taken into account, the significance of which can change within time in a high degree of probability (falling demand, new technologies development), as a result of which the solution may not be appropriate for the created conditions.
In this connection, it is required: to determine the whole range of factors that should be taken into account when deciding on the ownership form of transport means; the development of scientific and methodological approach to the decision-making on the task at hand, allowing, with acceptable labor input, to take into account all the important factors affecting the efficiency of the enterprise's activities insofar as it depends on the ownership form of the vehicles.
The article suggests the method of making decision on the form of transport means ownership in the transportation organization, allowing taking into account the influence of the entire spectrum of identified factors. As a methodological basis, it is proposed to use linguistic variables, through which each of the significant factors is evaluated, with methodological recommendations for determining their level.
