Grain loading for export on the Russian Railways’ network increased by 87% in January-July 2018

The total volume of grain loaded on the network of the Russian Railways in January-July 2018 amounted to more than 15.9 million tons, 51.7% more than in the same seven months of 2017.

During the same period, more than 9.7 million tons were shipped for export, an increase of 86.8% compared to the level of 2017.

The biggest figures for grain loading during January to July were recorded in the regions of Saratov (about 1.4 million tons, up by a factor of 2.5), Kursk (1.2 million tons, up by 44.6%), Tambov (1 million tons, which nearly doubled, with an increase of 93.4%) and Volgograd (991,000 tons, which also nearly doubled with an increase of 97.5%).

In addition, the biggest loading increases during the seven months of 2018 was noted in such fertile regions as Orenburg (which recorded a threefold increase to 760,000 tons), Samara (up by a factor of 2.9 to 447,000 tons), Ulyanovsk (an increase of 2.8 times to 225,700 tons), Novosibirsk (increase of 2.5 times to 408,700 tons) and Penza (which doubled to 515,000 tons).

In order to attract additional volumes of freight to rail, the Company Board decided to establish a decreasing coefficient of 0.929, which is equivalent to a 7.1% discount on the tariffs for grain exports sourced from the stations located in the Voronezh, Orel, Tambov, Orenburg, Saratov, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Kursk, Lipetsk, Penza, Samara, Ulyanovsk and Kurgan regions through Russian ports on their own rolling stock and containers.

The discount applies to wheat, rye, oats, barley, corn, rice, buckwheat, beans, peas, beans and other grains and will be valid until 31 December 2018 inclusive.
