ABSTRACT

In this research, we investigate the location rationality and the need of further investment in the Sviyazhsk interregional multimodal logistics center development which is situated on the Republic of Tatarstan territory. The aim of the study is an estimation of this logistic center's possible load degree (as the capacities storage factor, etc.) from the perspective of freight turnover due to its physical location in the region and its impact on regional development. Basing on this analysis is determined the degree of conformity of the proposed picture to the real regional development. For the forecasting were used the formalized methods the advantages of which are the accuracy of results in the short term and the reproducibility ease. Also, there were some disadvantages as within the study was revealed some data collection complexities hereat the forecast is based fully on the open statistical data of regional and national economic indicators. For the more detailed results was made an attempt of data collection (using the created questionnaire) an analysis of which would show the most adequate picture of the real needs of companies coordinating the storage facilities, transport services, information support, and the degree of their interconnections on the territory of the republic. With the forecasting using the random-walk method and the moving average the received results of the real and the future picture comparison looks satisfactory proved. The results of our estimation confirm the necessity of this center and demonstrate its full load based on the dynamics of studied freight turnover indicators.
