What does the statistics of a cargo transportation by rail testify to? What is told by these data on work of the Russian industry and agriculture? Photo: BFM.ru the statistics for the last summer month Has appeared. A cargo transportation on railway for January — August has grown almost by 3% by the same period of last year. The leader in dynamics — grain: plus 44%. All this still effect of a record harvest. Also in leaders ferrous metals — nearly 11%, iron ore and coal: both freights have added nearly 5,5%. One more leader in volume — oil and oil products: they have kept indicators at the level of last year. And now to the main subject. In October of Russian Railway corporation 15 years are executed, we reckon from reform of Ministry of Railways and creation of joint-stock company. Time to sum up the results. So, main figure: goods turnover in 15 years has grown more than by one and a half times, the CEO of Institute of problems of natural monopolies Yury Saakian tells. Yury Saakian the CEO of Institute of problems of natural monopolies "In general if to compare with 2003, then loading has grown. Goods turnover, and is one of key indicators of railway transport, has grown from 2003 to 2017 by 54,5%. Rather serious growth, one may say, that railway transport copes with the task". For descriptive reasons we will give a concrete example. Coal — the most mass freight of the railroads, one of bases of cargo base of carrier. We have already mentioned his growth in eight months of this year. One of the main reasons — the excellent export prices. And not without reason recently export on railway has for the first time exceeded internal transportations of "black reliable gold". But if to look back for 15 years that there is a Russian Railway, then during this time transportations of coal have grown almost by one and a half times. Especially it was shown in recent years. "Coal export has very strongly increased that is connected with a favorable economic environment for our coal industry in foreign markets and, respectively, with tariffs for transportation by railway transport, favorable to consignors. From 2010 to 2017 loading of coal for export has grown more than by 80%. It means that there is a buyer for this coal". About the importance of coal for carrier it is possible to judge also by such figures: since 2003 its specific weight in goods turnover has grown from 28% to 43%. And if to take railway goods turnover of fuel and energy complex, then there the share of coal exceeds 70%. All this would be impossible if in 15 years the Russian Railway company didn't build infrastructure. It is one of the main merits of the company during her existence. "The Russian Railway rather actively also modernizes the existing infrastructure, both develops, and builds new. For example, in the run-up to the Olympic Games in Sochi also the railroad has been constructed and put into operation combined automobile. The railway line bypassing Ukraine 137 km long is built, very big, large-scale program for modernization of infrastructure of BAM and the Trans-Siberian Railway is carried out, approaches to ports of the Azovo-Chernomorsky pool develop.
