The paper examines methods for measuring labour productivity in transport as a basis for implementing an effective strategic planning system of the transport sector personnel requirements. The author conducted the research of existing methods of planning and recording labour productivity and proposed the method of integrated measurement of labour productivity in uniform (labour) indicators for all PJSC "UZ", as well as for separate production groups and service jobs. This method allowed revealing the main productivity growth reserves and giving recommendations for their use. The author developed approximate standards of labour, as well as methods for calculating the economic efficiency of the internal reserves resulted from the introduction of new technology, best practices, etc. Reserves and methods of increasing labour productivity are considered in relation to the specific conditions and peculiarities of the work of transport, its branch facilities, enterprises and linear organizations.The area of labour notions is very complicated, and herewith the most general concepts of labour terms are used in different ways. Therefore, when studying the issues of labour productivity, it is necessary, above all, to define its concept. It also needed to identify the main labour terms (labour activity, work, difficulties, difficulty of work, labour productivity, production, productivity of individual, social labour, means, subject of labour, qualification, specialty, profession, etc.). The work considers the issues raised taking into account the specific features of the organization of production and labour activities in the transport industry, specifies the employment terms and reveals their definitions.The author concluded that the more acceptable indicator for measuring labour productivity at the transport, economy, enterprise and unit labour level is the indicator of labour costs per unit of output, and the measurement method is the complex one. The application of this method does not require the expansion of forms of transport statistics. On the contrary, the complex method simplifies and improves their management by reducing a number of employee output indicators by type of work and categories of workers.
