Abstract: 

Currently Kazakhstan is among the 7 major world grain exporters, but it is the only country without an access to the sea. Therefore the complex logistics, high tariffs and the long terms of delivery make Kazakh grain expensive and noncompetitive on the world market.
Authors offer to carry out the comprehensive analysis and assess the prospects of grain transportation routes taking into account financial and political risks. Lowering risks through diversification of transportation routes is possible. Statistical methods, expert marks and solution of the production-transportation problem are used as instruments of shipments stability analysis.

Keywords: 
grain market, yield, transportation, costs, risks.
