In accordance with its Strategy, the Company has invested in projects that have contributed to increasing the efficiency and scale of the business in 2020. The Company was actively implementing state-of-the-art information technologies to improve labour productivity and reduce empty runs by optimising container logistics.

In 2020, the Company’s investment programme took into account the targets for increasing business volumes, growth of operational efficiency, as well as new solutions to attract railcars and containers of other owners to provide services to the Company.

The volume of the investment programme was influenced by the volume of investments in railcars and containers in 2019.

  • 3.2 thousands of flatcars, 7.3 thousands of ISO containers were purchased;
  • the project of reconstruction of one of the key terminals of the Company at Zabaikalsk station has been completed, as well as works to improve the terminal infrastructure at Kirov, Lagernaya, Kleshchikha, Khabarovsk and Chita stations have been carried out;

The actual ratio of own and third-party assets is determined by economic considerations (profitability or alternative costs).
