Introduction. In the context of systemic changes in the country’s economy caused by global challenges, the development of transport infrastructure, which is used by absolutely all types of economic activity, is important. The article states that the logistical ties that have been formed since independence and in cooperation with international partners have been partially lost during the military aggression by Russia. Today, one of the important conditions for the active development of the logistics transport system, including rail transport, is the inflow of investment resources, which is possible by finding sources of funding to improve new enterprises or by updating the material and technical base and highly professional staff. Therefore, a comprehensive study of the processes of supporting the railway industry as the main carrier of most passengers and goods is needed.

The purpose of the article is to study the peculiarities of the development of the logistics system of railway transportation in the conditions of modern challenges.

Results. The article analyzes the theoretical and methodological approaches on the basis of which the idea of the study is formed and highlights the main directions of development of the logistics system of railway transportation. A retrospective and the current state of transport in Ukraine, both cargo and the number of passengers are reflected. The main problems that arise today in the logistics system of rail transport are described, in particular in the conditions of fierce competition of such carriers as cars or air transport.

Conclusions. The article substantiates the essence and features of supporting the development of the logistics system of railway transportation in the context of systemic changes and the integration of Ukraine’s economy into the economic system of EU member states. A number of measures aimed at high-quality investment support of the railway logistics system are proposed, which is extremely important today in the conditions of competition between different transport carriers.
