OREANDA-NEWS. In the current year since the first days of January the National Carrier fully ensures the declared loading of coal taking into account the production capacities for producing grades of coal and the infrastructural capabilities of coal mines.

Since the beginning of the year in view of the long weekend in the Russian Federation, according to requests for coal mines, the delivery of empty rolling stock, including low-sided car (gondola), has been increased. The maintenance of the empty gondola car park in relation to December of last year was increased by 3 222 gondola cars on average per day.

The main reason for the congestion on the access roads of coal mines was a car detention of private russian fleet, which arrived for coal shipment for export, thereby limiting the infrastructural capability in the places where the coal mines themselves were loaded.
