Transport and Logistics in Belarus

Belarus is the crossroads of centuries-old trade routes from Russia to western Europe, and the Baltic to the Black Sea. As a result the country has developed a good transport infrastructure and it is determined to build on this strength, predominantly through foreign investment.

“Belarus is a very important logistics hub and I think it’s a good opportunity for Belarus to make money."
Vladimir Rybolovlev, head of Bosch in Belarus

Transport and logistics firms feature heavily in the government’s privatisation programme, with railways, road-building and maintenance companies, and shipping lines on the list. Even the Pinsk and Gomel shipyards, and the state’s air freight company, Transaviaexport Airline, feature. The Government also wants to redevelop its inland water network and build up a commercial shipping fleet.

Specific investment projects include plans to upgrade the Belarusian stretch of the Moscow-Paris railway network and the Warsaw to Moscow motorway, as well as many regional roads and by-passes.
