Currently the global market for intermodal transport (containers in particular) is evolving at a significant pace. The Russian market development of intermodal transport occurs with low speed. It should be noted that low competitiveness of container transport prevents the development of intermodal delivery method within Russia. In addition, this factor stops implementing national transit potential of transport corridors passing through the territory of the country. To date the delivery chains formation is perceived as a secondary process, which provides the scope for production sector and delivers the finished product to the consumer. However, it is the intensive development of intermodal technologies that remains an economic security guarantee and a reserve for increasing the product competitiveness opposed to the rate of finished products production. As a result, the method development of intermodal supply chains formation at large industrial enterprises appears very important. The paper deals with a model and algorithm of forming a system of intermodal cargo delivery chains of the metallurgical enterprises. We performed calculation of the potential economic benefits from their introduction.
