Background: The subject of this research is the formulation of recommendations for the improvement of the national logistics system of the Russian Federation. The aim of the work is to analyze Russia through 6 dynamic indicators across 11 years. It should be understood that state policies and measures take time to be implemented and carry certain costs with them, which precludes momentary full-scale development. Triage is needed to understand the critical sectors of the national logistics system that are the most underdeveloped at the current moment, with future resources already aimed at small-scale development and/or helping newly developed logistics areas function at a satisfactory level.

By itself, logistics development is very important for any country in the current international market, with Russia having the potential to be a crucial transport link between East-West/West-East product and container flows.

Methods: Russia’s country-level logistics system is analyzed by us through the use of the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index and its 6 indicators. Detailed observation allows the pinpointing of problematic areas and further development of group solutions and recommendations at the state level.

Results: Recommendations for national logistics system development grouped in a prioritized list with 2 different resulting scenarios. Division of measures is needed since resource scarcity may not allow wide full-scale eradication of all identified logistical bottlenecks at once. Approximate results of scenario implementation given through comparable estimates made by governmental bodies.

Conclusions: The developed scenarios with appointed integration conditions are aimed at the development of Russia’s national logistics system for a better competitive situation in the international market.
