Russian Rail Freight

A report recently published by a global management consultant company suggests that economic recovery will strongly benefit rail freight in Russia. Indications are that rail container volumes will grow by about 10% per year, but operators will need to increase the range of services on offer, to include door-to-door delivery, logistics management and warehousing services.  Maritime rail container and inland rail container transport in Russia has shown strong growth since 2005, and the sector has recovered well after the global economic crisis.  The main limit on growth is the infrastructure, particularly at large ports such as St Petersburg, Novorossiysk and Vostochny.  The Russian Ministry of Transport will allocate funds for developing the infrastructure, which should increase the container terminal capacity.  Rail has 43% of the overall share of the freight market in Russia, much higher than in China and the EU.
