The analysis of delivery technology of grain cargoes in the containers in the international traffic have enabled to offer three alternative technological schemes of delivery of grain cargoes in the international traffic: the first scheme is with the use of rail transport (grain cars) to deliver grain to the port of departure, the second scheme is with the use of road transport (bulk grain lorries) to deliver grain to the port of departure, the third scheme is with the use of the containers and carriages to deliver grain to the port of departure. The model describing the factors that affect the system is built: input parameters (the shipment volume, the distance of transportation); output parameters - the total expenses on grain delivery from the elevator of the shipper to the shipper, taking into account external factors: the specific time of loading, unloading, average technical speed of transportation, downtime at the customs point. The full-factorial plan of the experiment has been developed which consists of 9 series of experiments. Based on the regression analysis of the experimental results the regression model is determined in a linear form with non-zero coefficient where each factor indicates the degree of influence of the relevant factor on the effective rate. The results of the effect determination on the change of the distance of cargo delivery for volume shipment of 200 tons have got the greatest effect.
