The transport and logistics market make high demands on the speed of decision making and their economic feasibility. In the conditions of a dynamically developing market of transport and logistics services, decision-making must be carried out quickly, on the one hand, and reasonably on the other. The adoption of such decisions in complex terminal systems for the delivery of goods requires the use of methods that allow such a comprehensive assessment. Obviously, the methodology should be objective and consider many factors of the work of the terminal and logistics complexes. This circumstance determines the relevance and purpose of this work - the development of methods for integrated assessment of the parameters of the terminal and logistics complexes based on the total rating. To achieve the goal and approbation of the methodology, we used programming tools in the Scilab environment, as well as methods of systems theory, terminalistics, logistics, economics, organization and planning of railway transport operation, expert assessments, SWOT analysis, calculation of parameters of freight fronts, score ratings, linear and dynamic programming. The practical significance of the results obtained in the study is to develop applied assessment tools for conducting an express analysis of the activities of terminal and logistics complexes on several key parameters. The subject of future research may be to solve the problem of reducing the subjectivity of evaluation by this method.
