Russian Railways (JSC RZD) starts working on its new tariffs price list for the transportation of goods and infrastructure services, reports TASS.
During a round table on “Rail deliveries of oil tanker and LPG”, the head of department for implementation of the tariff policy in the field of freight rail transportation of JSC RZD Alevtina Kirillova said that “the current Tariff List n. 10-01 [includes tariffs for the transportation of goods and infrastructure services carried out by Russian Railways – ed.] is currently applied. However, there is work in progress on a new version of the tariff list in accordance with necessary assignments”. She also said that so far there is no exact timing required for the realization of a new list, but she believes it will “be done quickly in view of issued assignments”.
According to her, the methods to be applied to the development of the document will depend on the approved Model of market development for freight rail traffic until 2020.
Earlier, the head of the Russian Railways Oleg Belozerov said that the new tariff list would reflect rail network rate of work. According to Mr Belozerov, the document should include a large number of different criteria and technical approaches, not only the car weight or the distance. He also highlighted that the tariff policy of the state railway company will be adjusted during the next 1.5 years. What concerns rail traffic from the Far East, the work is required to be finalized faster.
