As a result of the work for eleven months, ‘Railways of Yakutia’ Company has transported 3.7 million tons of cargo. This exceeds last year's figures by 40%.


The increase in forwarding is connected with active development of Kolmar Management Company and coal shipment from stations of Chulbass and Denisovsky. So, for 11 months of the current year the volume of coal loading amounted to nearly 2.3 million tons, of which 2.19 million - a shipment of Kolmar Management Company. The increase compared to the same period last year is 50%.

Positive dynamics is observed in transportation of other nomenclatures. Thus, compared to the same period last year, oil products transported by 50.5% more, or 358.6 thousand tons. The volume of shipments of construction materials amounted to 138.5 thousand tons – by 42% more than last year. Stable trend of container traffic growth continues, the increase was 33.7% - 227 thousand tons. Reducing the traffic volume, slightly - by 8.8%, refers to food - 52.4 thousand tons. This is due mainly to the changeover from wagon to container shipments.
