JSC Russian Railways and international railway оrganizations

Preservation of the technological unity of the railways of the countries of Eurasia is one of the priority objectives of the CIS Council of Railway Transport, as well as specialized international organizations and associations.

Work in these formats helps us create favorable regulatory conditions of the market of international logistics, increasing the commercial attractiveness of the Holding Company’s transport and logistics services.

The INTERTRAN project, which was launched last year at the Asia-Pacific Assembly of the International Union of Railways (UIC from the French), has reduced the total cargo clearance time to 4 days.

Convention on international direct railway traffic was adopted within the framework of the Organization for Cooperation of Railways and is aimed at alleviating the accumulated regulatory barriers, which arise in the interaction of railways with various regulatory norms and railway gauge width.

Amendments and additions to the Agreement on international goods transport by rail (SMGS) were agreed upon.

Also underway is the expansion of the geography of application of the CIM/SMGS unified consignment note. Amendments were made to the Instruction Manual for this unified document and came into force in January 2019.

A paramount goal is the establishment of a common railway law. This comprehensive objective requires a systemic solution, especially since our competitors – sea and air transport – already have a similar law for several decades.

A program of activities of the Asian-Pacific Regional Assembly of the International Union of Railways (UIC), which was drafted by JSC Russian Railways, was successfully completed.

Within the framework of the UIC project called "EcoScoring – Ecological Rating" we are working to attract green investments.

Successful efforts and results are made within the framework of representing Russian Federation in the BRICS Business Council.

A mechanism for regular meetings of the heads of railway administrations operates on the venue of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SOC). One of the long term goals of this work is the future connection of the railway systems of the SOC member states into a single railway network, which will open up entirely new opportunities for organization of transport processes.
