Railway transport firmly holds the niche of economy class traffic. Russian and Continental Railways network has a strong geographic coverage and allows cheap and reliable delivery of cargo over long distances. A small (relative to other modes of transport) speed successfully pays by low cost delivery.
Transportation in wagons or open wagons are suitable for most general (coal, grain, industrial raw materials, pulp and paper products), as well as heavy or oversized cargo (timber, metal and reinforced concrete structures).
In order to reduce transport costs for long distance railway traffic can be effectively used for the movement of cargo that do not require special storage conditions. For large shipments organization of railway shipping as one composition can minimize the bureaucratic component.
The key to the safe delivery is a matching lashing circuit according to technical standards. For extra-heavy and oversized cargo special methods of secure fixation are developed.
Railway track in Western Europe differs from domestic with its width. Therefore, in international traffic an overloading or replacement of rolling stock wheel pairs may be needed.
Organization of rail transport requires a compliance of all formalities to enter into agreements with the start and end stations, with Russian Railways and the special bank account for the write-off of expenses on transportation and related procedures.
