Results. The basic directions of development of European transport networks are shown. The most important transportation corridors passing through the territory of the Member States are considered. The indicators of transportation of cargo by each mode of transport are analyzed. They are necessary for the formation for strategically important transport corridors. The peculiarities of the transport policy for each vehicle, which affect the development of transport networks in general are defined. The analysis has revealed correlation between economic development and the degree of involvement of the global economic system and the main indicators of transport networks.
