The article discusses the international transport route that passes through the South Caucasus and is part of the transport-logistics system connecting Europe-Asia. The international transport corridor is considered as a way to strengthen the unity of the country’s economic space and develop international cooperation. The importance of the corridor is particularly noteworthy in the current geopolitical situation, when the transit cargo turnover in the South Caucasus region has increased, and the interest of international carriers is growing every year. The current state of the transport corridor is analyzed, as well as the role of Batumi and Poti ports in the development of transit freight. Moving cargo from the Caspian region to Europe is possible only with a developed transport and logistics infrastructure. A number of measures have been analyzed to eliminate obstacles in certain areas of the corridor, which will ensure its proper functioning. This can be achieved by implementing new infrastructure projects, simplifying customs procedures, implementing TradeLens, etc.
