80% of Russian Rail Freight Carried on 20% of Infrastructure
Around 80% of all the rail freight in Russia is transported on 20% of the infrastructure, the RZD-Partner quotes Sergey Tugarinov, Deputy Head of OAO RZD Transport Service Center. He made this statement at the TransRussia International Exhibition.
“The transportation system was established in the Soviet times and was designed for the manufacturing capacities of those days”, Mr. Tugarinov said. “It does not correspond to the current freight turnover logic”.
