The article discusses the role of sustainable transport systems in competitiveness of Georgian agri-food products. Georgian agri-food products are less competitive on international markets. The country has FTAs with its partners that should make Georgian goods more competitive, at least in terms of price. Transport and logistics is one of the main parts of export, therefore, they have an impact on competitiveness of exported goods. Georgia trades with its neighbour countries, with the EU, China, etc. The EU and China represent huge markets and Georgian government targets to increase export in both directions, but there is a long distance between Georgia and its target markets, therefore it needs a developed transport and logistics system. On the other hand, portions of exported Georgian agri-food products are primary production, which have a shorter lifetime period, that’s why they should be transported in a short period of time, with specific machines. Without development of the transport system it is impossible to achieve sustainable export of agri-food products into Georgia’s target markets. Investments in the system, with tangible strategy and holistic approach can create a sustainable transport system that will increase competitiveness of Georgian agri-food products in international markets.
