The Far Eastern Railway discussed the preliminary results of the 2014 year and prospects for the development of cargo transportation in the 2015 year

24 November in Khabarovsk under the chairmanship of the acting President. Head of the Far Eastern Railway Aleksey Gladilin, a meeting of the Far Eastern Interregional Coordination Council on the provision of freight traffic was held. The event was attended by representatives of the administrations of the subjects of the Far East, the management of companies-consignors and consignees, freight operators and other partners of the Far Eastern Railway.

As Aleksey Gladilin noted in his speech, the main goal of the meeting is to summarize the preliminary results of joint activities with the partners of the road in 2014, and based on the analysis of the work done, to determine the tasks for 2015.

According to the head of the Far Eastern Territorial Center of Corporate Transport Services Maxim Belousov, the volume of loading on the Far Eastern Railway for 10 months of 2014 amounted to 40,1 million tons, which is 2,1% less than in the same period last year or 868,5 thousand tons. The decrease in loading volumes is primarily due to a decrease in the volume of shipments of coal (by 8,7% compared to 2013), construction cargo (by 14,7%), and imported cargo (by 15,7%). However, a significant increase in loading volumes for various types of cargo nomenclature is also noted at the road test site. Thus, the traffic volumes of the Yakutugol Holding Company (Verkhnezeysk station) have tripled. The growth in the loading of oil products by RN-Trans CJSC (Dzemgi station) for 10 months of 2014 amounted to 10%. In addition, the handling of cement increased by 9,2%, timber cargo - by 11,8%. In the outgoing 2014, special attention was paid to the development of railway border crossings. Only through the border crossing Makhalino (RF) - Hunchun (PRC) for 10 months of this year, it was possible to transport about 500 thousand tons of cargo, taking into account the fact that it began functioning in December 2013.

Also, this year, in the sea port of Rajin (DPRK), the Far East Railway, in cooperation with domestic and foreign partners, put into operation a cargo terminal, which opens prospects for the organization of cargo transportation from Russia to South Korea and in the opposite direction through the international transit transport corridor Primorje-2 .

It should be noted that thanks to successful joint work with all participants of the transportation process, this year it was possible to expand the list of cargoes transported through the border crossing of Grodekovo (Russian Federation) - Suifenhe (PRC). Now the movement of container trains is organized in this direction. In addition, the leadership of the Far Eastern Railway is actively continuing work to improve the transportation process and the services provided. So, at the training ground, the project of organizing the movement of freight trains on a specially designed schedule is successfully implemented taking into account the opinions of customers. This service allows the consignor and consignees to fully think over the entire logistics scheme for the delivery of goods in a clearly defined time frame.

Also, for the convenience of customers, the Far Eastern Railway together with its customers has organized an electronic system for working with documents in the ETRAN system using an electronic digital signature. Innovation allows the client, without leaving the office, to issue and sign almost any documents related to rail transportation.

In addition, during the meeting, Alexey Gladilin emphasized that from the beginning of 2015, large-scale work on the reconstruction of the railway infrastructure will continue at the Far Eastern Railway test site, eliminating "bottlenecks" limiting the throughput and carrying capacity of the road.

- In 2015, we need to continue active work to increase the volume of loading, which, in turn, will contribute to the development of the business community of the Far East, the subjects of the region, and the provision of new jobs. At present, taking into account the macroeconomic situation in the region and the current trends in the country's market, we set the task of increasing the amount of loading compared to the current year by 5%, - noted Alexey Gladilin.
