The author explores the basic international legal instruments of the SCO, relating to the transport sector; also the latest empirical material is examined. The peculiarities and disadvantages of the legal regulation of the transport and logistics activity are identified.The author examines the actual problem of connection of the modern Eurasian mechanisms of state cooperation in terms of the creation an efficient transport infrastructure and concludes that the latest transport initiatives of China and Russia can effectively be implemented on the basis of the SCO. Connection of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEC) and the Silk Road Economic Belt (SREB) with the SCO as an institutionalized international organization and an effective platform for the development of coordinated decisions is expected to be optimal. The combination of these mechanisms will create anew model of economic cooperation. The construction and modernization of transcontinental transport highways seems as the basis for the practical implementation of the connection of the Eurasian integration mechanisms.
