The relevance of issues about development of the customs and logistics framework of international transport corridors is caused by constantly increasing value of global supply chains. The international differentiation of labor creates conditions for increase in volumes of the export–import cargo transportation that, in its turn, leads fight for attraction of international transportation flows. The purpose of the contribution consists in determination of development prospects of the International North-South Transport Corridor and designation of the most important improvement tendencies of its customs and logistic infrastructure. The key regularities of development of the commodity turnover between the members countries of the North-South corridor are revealed in the work, the factors exerting the greatest impact on the volumes of cargo transportation are defined, and the development prospects of the foreign trade cooperation are designated. In the course of the research, the main issues impeding full use of the transit potential of the transport corridor are emphasized, the improvement tendencies of its transport, customs and logistics infrastructure are determined. The relevance of the studied issue is caused by keen interest of the member countries of the International North-South Transport Corridor to its further development and increase in volumes of mutual trade. Development of the transport corridor is especially important for Russia. It allows enhancing our own export potential and increasing budget revenues due to attraction of the considerable transit freight traffic, passing between the countries of Europe and Southeast Asia.
