Rail Freight Rises 10.6%

Rail freight volume increased 10.6 percent in January year on year, a source familiar with Russian Railways operations said Wednesday.

Average daily volume was 3.14 million tons, or a total of 96.95 million tons for the entire month. Freight volume in January 2010 was 87.6 million tons, 17.2 percent more than in January 2009, and freight turnover was up 16.6 percent to 149 billion ton-kilometers, according to data provided by the railway. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
