Loading of grain on the network of Russian Railways increased by 20.8% in September 2017


In September 2017, loading volumes of grain on the network of Russian Railways increased by 20.8% compared to September 2016 and amounted to about 2.23 million tons.

Grain loaded for export exceeded 1.38 million tons, up by 60.6% compared to September 2016.

The leaders in grain handling volumes in September were Stavropol Territory, with 415,500 tons, an increase of 57%, Krasnodar Territory, with 228,100 tons, up by 20%, Saratov Region (Oblast), with 201,900 tons, up by 52.1%, and Volgograd Region, with 177,000 tons, up by 47.9%.

The biggest percentage increases in loading volumes were registered by fertile regions such as Kursk Region, up 77.7% to 110,000 tons, Rostov Region, up 73% to 133,900 tons, Orel Region, up 36.7% to 68,000 tons, and Orenburg Region, up 30.4% to 92,000 tons.

Russian Railways is taking all the necessary measures needed to ensure the transportation of the entire amount of freight due to be shipped.

In order to attract additional freight volumes to rail, the Company's Board decided to establish a lowering coefficient of 0.897 (i.e. a discount of 10.3%) on tariffs for grain shipments carried on iots own rolling stock and containers from the train stations located in the Voronezh, Orel, Tambov, Orenburg, Saratov, Novosibirsk and Omsk Regions via Russian ports.

The discount applies to wheat, rye, oats, barley, corn, rice, buckwheat, beans, peas, beans and other grain cargoes (ETSNG 011-018).

The coefficient entered into force on 1 October 2017 and will remain effective until 30 June 2018 inclusive.
