RU EN

Oleg Belozerov, President of Russian Railways, has held a holiday conference call, which, in line with tradition, summed up the Company's performance during the "railway year."

The call took place on 4 August 2017 in the run up to the Day of Railway Workers.

Also taking part in the call were Maxim Sokolov, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, Sergey Aristov, Secretary of State and Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, Alan Lushnikov, Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, and Vladimir Chepets, the Head of the Federal Agency for Railway Transport.

"We have achieved good results since August last year and achieved dynamic growth in freight traffic against the background of the positive trends in the Russian economy. We finished 2016 with turnover up by 1.5%, while in the 7 months of this year we have seen an increase of 6.7%," said Oleg Belozerov.

"I believe that this past year has been a landmark year for changing our attitude towards clients and increasing the level of openness regarding our work, accessibility and quality of services," said the Company President. "We have greatly simplified our processing procedures for the main areas of our operations. We are actively developing electronic document circulation - all stations involved in freight operations are in the system, along with more than 8,000 enterprises. We have also launched an electronic trading platform. And we have increased train speeds, improved our freight delivery times and the parameters of rolling stock use."

Analysing the results of work for 7 months of this year, the president of OJSC Russian Railways said that since the beginning of 2017, tariff freight turnover had increased by 7.1% and more than 727 million tons of freight were shipped, which is 3.3% more than in the same period in 2016.

Passenger transportation during the same period increased by 9.2% and exceeded 632 million passengers.

At the end of the conference call, the Company President congratulated all of RZD Holding's employees and veterans on the Day of Railway Workers and wished everyone happiness and further success in their work.
