The number of cargo heavyweights on the Far Eastern Railway in January-August 2017g increased by 100 trains

The number of connected freight trains carried by the Far Eastern Railway (Far Eastern Railways, a branch of Russian Railways) for the eight months of 2017 increased by 100 trains (by 2,5%) over the same period last year, the mainline corporate communications service said on Tuesday. A total of 4138 United freight trains were conducted during the reporting period. The average weight of the loaded train was close to 11,9 thousand tons, the maximum exceeded 12,5 thousand tons. The number of cars in them reaches 130 units.

Practically all the connected trains went through Transsib. So, for delivery of cargoes to Pacific ports, 2025 of United trains proceeded along the Arkhar-Shkotovo section, in the opposite direction - 2111. Two more compositions were carried out according to BAM.

The carrier notes that this technology allows to support the dynamic growth of freight traffic, and also accelerates the return of empty cars for new loading. It also has a positive effect on a number of important operational indicators, including the reduction of the energy intensity of the transportation process. In addition, its efficiency was demonstrated during the summer travel campaign, when in the intervals between repair or modernization of the infrastructure it was necessary to carry out the maximum number of cars in a short time.
