For developing States such as Kazakhstan, which are located far away from main shopping centers, the development of transit services is an important component of economic development. This article analyses the foreign trade transport services on the basis of the following indicators: exports and imports of services for cargo transportation by types of transport, analysis of transport services export in terms of transportation and types of transport, the volume of cargo in international traffic by type of transport.

In connection with these difficulties, proposed the main ways of development of transit policy of Kazakhstan. The results of this article can be used to improve transport logistics transit States.
