The issues of the development of the world economy and world trade in connection with freight traffic in the Eurasian direction are considered in the article. The volumes of cargo transportation within the EU, between the EU and China, Russia and the Republic of Belarus have been investigated. The results of the study showed that the volumes of freight transported by road are declining, while rail and sea transport is growing, and the volumes of transport by sea are growing at a faster rate. This trend corresponds to the transport policy of the European Union. Land transport cannot compete with maritime transport, either in terms of traffic or in value. Therefore, it is economically expedient to transport expensive goods with a relatively small weight and volume. The analysis of the volumes of both transit traffic through Belarus and the export-import cargo of the Republic of Belarus shows a significant decrease in the last few years. Recommendations, for increasing the flow of goods through the territory of Belarus, are proposed to realize its transit potential.
