Abstract. Today, transport and logistics are being strongly integrated, and new types of systems are emerging, which in the development of digital technologies make it possible to speak about the need to build modern systems of data systems management, to create legal and regulatory norms and to develop the corresponding physical, digital and intellectual infrastructure. For a huge country like Russia, there is little investment in transport infrastructure. The development of digital and intellectual infrastructure is included in the national project “Digital Economy of the Russian Federation” until the end of 2024, which is aimed at creating a stable and safe information and telecommunication infrastructure for high-speed transmission, processing and storage of large volumes of data, accessible to all organizations and households. In turn, the definition of the transport and logistics system is not sufficiently studied, as is the degree of integration of transport and logistics in the modern digital world. There are disparate definitions of the concepts of “node,” complex, “center,” portal “and” hub, “as well as in normative documents and in scientific circles there is an emphasis on a cluster approach, which in Russia is called a “cluster initiative”, which does not fully reflect the values of this scientific and practical direction. It should be noted that transport and logistics systems are characterized by all options for the development of integrated logistics – coordination between process participants, formation of an information system and coordination of costs for all participants. Today there are approaches in considering the transport and logistics system both from the point of view of both material flows and from the point of view of passenger flows. Today, an integrated approach is overdue in the management of transport and logistics systems and, as a result, intelligent information systems, which will allow to optimize the total transport flow.

Keywords: transport and logistics system, knot, complex, center, portal, hub, infrastructure.
