Increasing Competitiveness of the TSR
At the 21st CCTT Plenary meeting (on September 27-28, 2012, Helsinki) the decision to unite two CCTT working groups on increasing competitiveness of the Trans-Siberian transportations and on transportations of container freights on a sea leg of the Trans-Siberian route in one group - CCTT WG "On Increasing Competitiveness of the Trans-Siberian Route" was made to optimize working process.
CCTT WG "On Increasing Competitiveness of the TSR" works on promotion of the organization and bearing transportation burden on TSR as a part of container trains and on increasing commercial attractiveness of international freight transportation in large-capacity containers by means of:
Within WG continuous monitoring of a "Transsib” transport corridor functioning is carrying out promptly. Issues connected with staging of the container block trains such as "Baltic - Transit", "Ost Wind", "Kazakhstan Vector", "Slavyanskiy Express", etc., and with realization of new projects (the organization of trains for routes: Chongqing – Duisburg, Chengdu – Lodz, Wuhan – Pardubice, Rotterdam – Moscow, etc.) are also considered and settled at working meetings.
Members of CCTT WG consider it necessary to take the following measures for increasing competitiveness of the Trans-Siberian route:
Considering that cargo base for development of the Trans-Siberian transportations is rather big, its development on the Transsib is possible only by further improvement of the organization of container freight transportation, accelerations of their processing in transport junctions on joints of railway and sea transport and in crossing points with neighboring countries by:
To complete a strategic task on increasing of freight volume from APR countries through the port Vostochny by 2-3 times it is necessary:
CCTT WG meetings "On Increasing Competitiveness of the Trans-Siberian Route".
On 22th of April, 2012 CCTT WG meeting took place in Transport Service Centre of OAO RZD. Results of container transportation on the TSM in 2012 and in the first quarter of 2013, and also prospects of development of the Trans-Siberian transportations in the current year were under discussion.
