Abstract. It can be argued with certainty that the application of the modern concept of logistics (logistics approach) is focused on efficient management of flow and non-flow processes in order to reduce costs. The nature of logistics as an integrated process is discussed at various levels, while the optimal level of logistics costs and an acceptable level of service are important. In the context of the COVID, many companies reduce their costs and create new standards of work. Optimization affects all areas of the merchandise movement organization. Enterprise partnerships today provide more economic benefits for all participants. At the same time, modern technologies allow for end-to-end coordination, non-duplication and control of streaming processes. The priority of a territory with high intellectual, human, financial potential, when developing information exchange in supply chains, allows us to consider logistics as a mechanism for optimizing an enlarged unit that combines many supply chains and enterprises that ensure not only the supply of the city, but also production, distribution and consumption, taking into account the interaction of various modes of transport. Today, logistics and transport are rapidly integrating and, as a result, a new type of infrastructure appears, which is united by a new integrated approach – the interaction of logistics and information and communication technologies, which made it possible to manage pricing and there was a transfer of the point of profitability for participants in the logistics process to the field of transport and logistics services. At the same time, transport and logistics systems are designed to coordinate streaming processes in the city, which are also transformed during digital transformation.The formation of quasi-integrated transport and logistics systems today as a modern challenge allows us to form systems of a new type, which in the continuation of the development of the theory of integrated logistics allow us to reach a new level of coordination.

Keywords: integrated logistics, coordination, quasi-integrated transport and logistics system of the city.
