More cargo transported in the Urals

According to operative information, cargo turnover in the first 10 months of 2012 constituted 149.8 bln of tariff ton-km (+7.1% to first 10 months of 2011). Loading in the first 10 months (January – October) of 2012 amounted to 107.4 mln tons, which is 3.8% more than in the same period of 2011. In the first 10 months the following cargo was loaded by Sverdlovsk Railways:

- oil and oil products – 25.0 mln tons (+4.0% to January – October of 2011);
- construction materials – 21.5 mln tons (+22.8%);
- ferrous metals – 9.5 mln tons (+6.4%);
- ferrous scrap – 2.5 mln tons (+1.4%);
- iron and manganese ore – 10.4 mln tons (-1.9%);
- chemical and mineral fertilizers – 9.6 mln tons (-8.2%);
- industrial raw and molding materials – 7,1 mln tons (+8.9%);
- coke – 1.1 mln tons (-9.9%);
- cement – 2.05 mln tons (-6.0%);
- timber cargo – 1.8 mln tons (-3.3%);
- non-ferrous ores and sulphur raw materials – 5.3 mln tons (-19.8%);
- chemicals and soda – 3.6 mln tons (+2.7%);
- hard coal – 982.4 K tons (-3.1%);
- grain and milled products – 366.6 K tons (180% growth).

The “winter delivery” project successfully implemented by Sverdlovsk Railways first of all contributed to increase of loading volumes in comparison with last year. In the first 10 months of 2012, 14.4 mln tons of crushed stone (this exceeds the volume transported in the whole of 2011 by 8% or by 1 mln tons) were transported to the north of the Ural Federal District, including through winter delivery of 8.5 mln tons, with an increase by 1.5 times compared to the previous season.

Strong growth is also noted in the field of shipping oil products due to the increase of volumes practically by all enterprises by additional loading of existing capacities in the first quarter of 2012. Up to the end of 2012 the increase in loading oil products will be maintained due to completion of repair works at oil refining industries as well as due to the end of navigation and, therefore, to full working capacity of all enterprises in this field.

Another factor contributing to loading increase is the work conducted by Sverdlovsk Railways on optimization of logistics and reduction of empty counter traffic. In October the index of empty mileage was the lowest for the period July 2011 – October 2012 (10762 wagons), which is by 39% or 6.6 K wagons lower than the indices of January 2012.

The number of double ran operations was increased at the following stations:

Smychka – by 13.1% (from 19.4% to 32.5%),
Pervouralsk – by 22.3% (from 9.4% to 31.7%),
Revda – by 17% (from 32.8% to 49.8%),
Polevskoy – by 49% (from 34.9% to 83.9%),
Serov-Zavodskoy – by 9.1% (from 16.5% to 25.6%).

There is a significant decrease of loading indices on position “non-ferrous metal ore”, which can be explained by unstable prices for non-ferrous metals on the world market.
However, despite the loss in loading volumes, according to the total sum for 10 months of 2012 Sverdlovsk Railways are keeping up with the plan by more than 100%.

Loading of Sverdlovsk Railways in October 2012 in accordance with operative data constituted 11.0 mln tons, exceeding October 2011 by 2.0%. The cargo turnover in October 2012 increased over the same period last year by 1.5% and constituted 14.31 bln of tariff ton-km.

In October loaded were:

oil products – 2.6 mln tons (+8.6% to October 2011),
construction materials – 1.9 mln tons (+4.1%),
timber – 160.0 K tons (-14.0%),
ferrous metals – 990 K tons (+20.2%),
iron ore – 1.1 mln tons (-4.5%),
hard coal – 103.1 K tons (-10.7%),
coke – 98.6 K tons (-28.6%),
flux – 208.5 K tons (+7.9%),
fertilizers – 795.3 K tons (-30.4%),
industrial raw materials – 1.2 mln tons (-27.9%),
grain and milled products – 24.1 K tons (-7.3%).
