Terminal, warehousing and freight forwarding services
In 2018, Russian Railways loaded 412,500 railcars (up 7% y-o-y), including 277,400 railcars loaded with commercial cargo (up 6% y-o-y), as part of providing terminal and warehousing services.
The station of Tayshet was upgraded in 2018 to increase the volumes of cargo handled. The transshipment facility at Grodekovo, a satellite of the upcoming Primorsky dry port (Ussuriysk), was also upgraded to develop multimodal services in the Primorye-1 transport corridor (Harbin (China) – Grodekovo transshipment facility – Vladivostok ports – Asia Pacific ports).
Additional opportunities are also offered to customers delivering fish products from Russia’s Far East to West Siberia and the European part of Russia. One of the key tasks is therefore to establish freight terminals for reefer trains. In 2018, the Company upgraded a container yard at the station Artyom-Primorsky 1. Over 2,000 reefer containers with fish were shipped to Moscow, St Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk.
