The subject of the study - is a terminal network. The purpose of this study is to develop a set-theoretic model of terminal network. Research methodology bases on set theory, theory of transport systems, General systems theory and the author's methodology of terminalistics. In this study describes of the terminal network, its key elements and its logistics facilities; the factors affecting the composition and configuration of the terminal network. Also this study develops the model of the terminal network as a logistics chain, and its proposed integrated set-theoretic model of the terminal network of the region. A graphic model of the terminal network as a supply chain presents in the study. The task of finding the best option terminal network in this formulation becomes a three-tier and two-stage. The results of the study can be used as mathematical tools in the design, planning, development and evaluation of objects of terminal and warehouse infrastructure of Russian Railways.
