The paper discusses the possibility of applying a three-level freight system in multiport area of Leningrad region (LR). On the basis of foreign experience, the authors make a conclusion, that the system of rearward terminals should be developed in order to reclaim the loss of expected profit. A modified gravity method of distribution terminals placement is applied. A database containing geo-data on basic skeleton of roads, ports and industrial areas of LR is formed. A selection of industrial areas suitable for placing allocation terminals is carried out. A calculation of “transport attraction measure” for a certain number of selected industrial areas completed by the method of O. N. Chislov is given as an example. The cost of reloading (for one ton of cargo in a selected terminal) is reported.
