 The article deals with the issues of market regulation in the new conditions of the EAEU development and expansion of economic relations with other countries. The development of international road transport is considered on the example of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan. It is noted that these countries take a significant share of the Union's GDP and play a leading role in the transport of goods and passengers. The analysis of transport systems in Russia and Kazakhstan showed that countries pay great attention to transport infrastructure, however, issues of transport organization and management of transport resources are a weak link. The task is to transform not only the transport systems of each member of the EEU, but also to create a unified transport system.
The formation of a Common market and the transition to a Single market for transport services requires the development of new effective regulatory mechanisms. The ecosystem of digital transport corridors being developed in the EEU can become one of the modern tools.
The article notes that the countries in question play a special role in ensuring transit traffic between China and European countries. China's accession to the TIR Convention and the signing of a new Agreement on international road transport between Russia and China create prerequisites for the growth of cargo traffic by switching cargo from other modes of transport to road transport. But it is not only China that should be the target market. Russia and Kazakhstan also connect other countries with Europe – Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan. In the future, transportation to India and Pakistan is possible (taking into account the accession of these two countries to the SCO Agreement). The creation of the export transport potential of the EEU will both strengthen its position in traditional markets and enable enter new markets of third countries. The use of the transport and economic balance method will allow to predict not only the development of infrastructure, but also the needs for vehicles considering specialization.

The article deals with road transport as one of the fast growing and market oriented transport modes in the context of globalization. It is noted that international road transport is one of the most overregulated types of economic activities that reduces the trucking companies efficiency and hinders the international trade. For many countries, especially landlocked, it creates additional barriers on access to world markets. The analysis covers the access of international road transport operators to the market in countries of Eurasia. The authors explore the transformation of the international road transport market. In particular, it is noted that the integration development is closely related to the mechanism of international road transport regulation. For example, the EEU deals with the process of road transport liberalization, which is multilateral in nature. At the same time, it is noted that typically in Eurasian countries agreements are mostly bilateral in nature, and with a number of countries such agreements do not concluded. This situation is an obstacle to further economic integration in Eurasia. For several logistics projects implementation, transit on the Eurasian territory it is advisable to develop harmonised bilateral agreements which provide different levels of liberalization that would allow moving gradually from one level to another. Also, the gradual transition from a bilateral to multi-party agreements is examined. It is noted that simultaneously with the liberalization of international road transport it is necessary to harmonize the conditions of access to the market for national carriers, as well as to create equal conditions of competition. The Quantitative Analysis of Road Transport Agreements (QuARTA) by the World Bank study was used as a methodology. The article discusses the prospects of economic integration in Eurasia in the field of transport, the processes of formation of new elements of logistics.
