The aim of this article is elaboration of the evaluation model of interaction between container transportation and regional economy as well as characterization of some interaction aspects. The relevance of research is confirmed by lack of models of transport industry mutual influence on regional economy as well as practical mechanisms to integrate of regional development industry programs. This results in misbalance of container infrastructure functioning and efficiency reduction of transport service for regional cargo owners. The general theoretical model is given and grounded which envisages multifactor, mutual, directed to both sides influence of containerization on regional economic development. For evaluation of regional economic growth under the influence of container system development, dependencies were established of: reduction of cargo owners’ expenses in case of containerization increase of cargo produced in the region; cost effectiveness increase of regional enterprises in case of transport costs reduction. Practical significance of research results is in possibility to evaluate priorities in provisioning of the container system with the use of the model, to work out regional strategies of social and economic development of the region and transport industry, to prepare the most efficient investment flows.
