RZD's results for first five months
Russian Railways hauled 498.9 million t of freight in the first five months of the current year, 0.6% less than in the same period in 2013. Tariff turnover from January to May this year increased by 5.5%, or by 6.4% when taking into account the company's own empty wagon runs, compared to the like-for-like timeframe in 2013.
In the period under review, RZD Logistics carried more than 5.3 million t of freight when providing integrated transport and logistics services under contract to shippers and freight forwarders. RZD president Vladimir Yakunin said that in the first five months of 2014, targets for most rolling stock quality indicators had been met. (ben)
