In the conditions of the modern transport market, the issue of interaction of various types of transport is relevant. One of the most effective ways to deliver goods “from door to door” is container shipping. In order to increase the efficiency of using universal containers for the carriage of goods by rail, special measures are being taken to organize their movement. With this method of delivery, the safety of goods is reduced due to losses during trans-shipments from one type of transport to another. The use of containers allows you to reduce losses to a minimum. In addition, the cost of delivering goods in some parts of the transport logistics chain is reduced. Another direction of the development of container traffic is to increase the service of such shipments. So far, the problem of optimizing container transportation has been considered as a sum of local disparate tasks without taking into account the mutual solution of the various stages of container flow planning. This work is devoted to the development of an integrated methodology for planning the organization of container flows based on the principles of logistics. Such a methodology should provide for the joint solution of the planning stages for the carriage of goods in containers.
