Transportation and Logistics Business Unit

In 2014, Russian Railways continued active work to transition from shipping activities to transportation and logistics operations by developing integrated services, arranging scheduled shipments, expanding the range of 2PL, 3PL and 4PL services offered and establishing global logistics chains.

Overall handling on Russian Railways infrastructure in 2014 1,226.9 mln t A decrease of 0.8% compared with 2013

In 2014, the Russian fleet increased by 21.1 thousand railcars An increase of 1,8% compared with 2013

Freight turnover on Russian Railways infrastructure in 2014 2,954.5 bln tkm Growth of 5% compared with 2013

Given the limited opportunities to increase the scale and profitability of business in transportation segments regulated by the government, the Group performs active work to expand activities in de-regulated segments of the transportation and logistics market, consolidate the positions of Russian railways on Russian and foreign logistics markets and introduce modern 3PL/4PL logistics technologies on the network.
