Commitments and Targets

By the year 2025:

  • increase the carrying capacity of railway infrastructure to 28.3 million tonnes/year;

  • redistribute cargo flow among the sea ports: 3 million tonnes/year at the port in Vistino (Leningrad Region), 2.5 million tonnes/year at the port in Lavna (Tuloma, Murmansk Region);

  • change the car fleet structure to favor own innovative rolling stock.

Our Results

In 2020:

  • the carrying capacity of the Company’s railway infrastructure increased to more than 16.5 million tonnes/year compared to 2019;

  • we are one of the key partners of such sea ports as Sea Terminal Tuloma LLC (Lavna) and Ultramar Terminal (Vistino). These sea ports are built with consideration for all modern environmental requirements and are located outside the 500-metre protection area of water bodies;

  • our own fleet of cars has increased by 37 % compared to 2019, which enhances the environmental safety of transportation, for example, due to switching from lump to liquid sulphur, and also reduces the carbon footprint of transportation per tonne due to the greater load capacity of cars.

More detailed information about the implementation of the relevant strategic goals of the Company is presented in the Integrated Reports.
