UrBC, Yekaterinburg, June 1, 2016. First Freight Company’s Yekaterinburg subsidiary held a meeting on railway freight forwarding in the Urals given the shrinking fleet of railcars, the company press service reports.

The meeting was attended by representatives of freight forwarders, local authorities, Sverdlovsk Railways, and First Freight Company’s Moscow management team. Sverdlovsk Region Legislative Assembly Vice Chair Anatoly Sukhov said meetings like this served as an efficient discussion platform to talk about current problems and try to find solutions to them.

Director of First Freight Company’s Yekaterinburg branch Vitaly Kushchenko focused in his report on how to use the division’s railcars more effectively at loading/unloading depots, how to reduce the time it takes to fix commercially unusable railcars, and how to get the railcars ready for loading and increase their lifespan. Kushchenko pointed out that the program they run jointly with Russian Railways to increase the railcar efficiency will help meet all of the freight forwarders’ needs despite the shrinking amount of rolling stock.
