The article suggests a methodological approach to assessment of speed costs of
transport systems at the new technological paradigm (The Fourth Industrial Revolution).
Objective: The purpose of the work is to study economic effects of transport and logis-
tical systems (TLS) performance as the infrastructure of high speeds economics.
Methods. Deep analysis of railway infrastructure as a subsystem has been given, which
has marked competitive advantages and ensures inclusion of the transport system in the new
The basic parameters of influence of new technological paradigm on transport systems,
namely, dominance of global network production and consumption, supply chain manage-
ment and added value creation through integration of products and services.
The methodology of the study is based upon quantum description of the economics as a
combination of the initial indivisible (quantum) economic structures (model or image), ac-
tions and relations between them (service business model), processes (predictive maintenance,
state tracking), economic interaction between economic action objects (joint use of resources,
instant response) in the space and time.
The authors have introduced the notion of high speed economics as a measure of the so-
ciety’s taking innovations, which changes all national and global markets, access to them, and
interbranch value chains creation. Time management, high speeds are the key competitive ad-
vantages of the scheme: “order – fulfillment of the order (service business model)”.
Results. The methods for assessment of speed of TLS, new nomenclature, method of
high speed caused effects assessment have been developed. The algorithm of decision making
about value of high speeds for transport services consumers in the new technological para-
digm has been justified.
On the basis of the analysis of three different distance transformation: length, connect-
ing two objects (expressed in length units), costs and time (speed) for covering distance, −
practical application of vector coefficient of the intensity of motion processes as the unit of
measurement of any motion has been justified. As the assessment of time and space efficiency
of TLS projects’ development, the product of the weight of the goods transported and vector
coefficient of motion intensity is used.
