Abstract. The current paper has presented the study of the most problematic aspects arising in the context of providing information when signing a commercial concession contract on the provision of transport services. Within the framework of this study, it was possible to formulate a number of conclusions that are essential both for a theoretical understanding of the issue and for the practice of law enforcement. In particular, on the basis of a formal dogmatic analysis of the current legislation, it was possible to come to the conclusion that information on logistics delivery schemes and the procedure for organizing transportation according to the Art. 1465 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation is an object of exclusive rights in the form of know-how, since the carrier organization always strives to ensure its confidentiality in the context of restricting a third party’s access. Based on this conclusion, in the future, there was analyzed the positive contradiction regarding the need for the obligatory provision of know-how as part of the fulfillment of the rightholder’s obligation to provide the user with the necessary information. The result of the conducted system-legal analysis was a well-grounded original conclusion, according to which know-how is, first of all, an object of exclusive rights and cannot be understood as information that the carrier organization, which is its rightholder, is obliged to provide information to the user in accordance with Art. 1031 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation. However, the identifiers with the help of which access to the information constituting the know-how is realized, will be subject to obligatory transfer. Along with the above, the paper has made a conclusion that there is no need to determine the conditions for using the information provided by the carrier organization in the field of logistics and the procedure for organizing activities in the commercial concession contract, since the know-how has a special confidentiality regime. The conclusions in the current paper, according to the authors, can serve as a basis for improving the law enforcement system for economic activities in transport using a commercial concession contract.
