In September, the volumes of Far Eastern fish transport to the European part of Russia decreased

The volume of transportation of fish from the Far East to the central regions of the country in September amounted to 27,7 thousand tons, which is by 22,8 percent less than in September 2013. This was reported by the TASS agency with reference to the press service of the Far Eastern Railway (Far East Railroad).

“In September and in the first days of October of this year, shippers of fish products from the Far East submitted applications for the transportation of fish in the amount of 36,3 thousand tons, and in fact, 27,7 thousand", - said the representative of the press service. Since the beginning of the year, 52 accelerated refrigerated trains have been dispatched from the Far East, which transported 100,3 thousand tons of fish. At the same time, the schedule provides for the dispatch of two such trains per day, which would make it possible to transport up to 1,5 million tons of fish. "The transportation potential of this train is used only by 6%," the Far Eastern Railways note.

According to acting. Head of the Far Eastern Territorial Center for Corporate Transport Services Alexei Lonshakov, the reason for the current situation is not high railway tariffs, but the "lack of understanding in coordinating prices between suppliers and consumers" of fish products».

“Despite the fact that the refrigerating capacities are full, the cargo is not presented for transportation,” Sergei Kolesnikov, First Deputy Director General of the Center for Corporate Transport Services of JSC Russian Railways, noted earlier in an interview with the Gudok newspaper. - The owners of the rolling stock suffer serious losses, since more than 300 refrigerated and insulated cars are idle».
