The share of JSC Freight One in total amount of transportation in the tank cars carried out in the area of Kuybyshev Railway (KbshRW) comprised 15% (+5% as compared with the first quarter of 2018).
Alexey Korenko, Director of Samara Branch of JSC Freight One commented saying, “Together with our partner — RN-Trans company — the branch introduced the routing service that proved its effectiveness at performing group deliveries of loaded tank cars from Syzran railway station. We started dispatching the railcars from Novokuybyshevskaya railway station to Krasnodar-Shunting Yard station and backwards without any processing in the shunting points. With completion of the season of sharp temperature drops we were able to provide for repeated loading of the tank cars for delivery of the cargo that had been previously transported therein – the Euro-5 grade Diesel fuel – without preparing of the rolling stock at washing and steaming stations. The very first shipment executed under the above scheme allowed accelerating the freight train run from 5.5 to 3.5 days”.
Basic nomenclature of the cargoes transported in tank cars was represented by gasoline – 632 thousand tons (+65% to the level of 2018) and Diesel fuel – 338 thousand tons (by 4.6 times more than for the same period of 2018).
The amounts of transportation of the oil products carried out by the branch in the territory of Russia increased by 43% reaching 1 million tons. The most popular directions of traffic were represented by Central, South-Eastern and North-Western regions.
