New Transportation market report from Business Monitor International: "Russia Freight Transport Report Q1 2015"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2015 -- Following a year in which BMI saw mixed growth dynamics across Russia's freight transport sector, with volumes either declining or growth slowing in most of the freight modes, 2015 will signal a further slowdown as the country's economy is expected to contract and the main driver of growth over the past decade - household consumption - continues to weaken.

Total trade is estimated to have decreased by 0.75% in real terms in 2014. It is projected to pick up, with our Country Risk desk forecasting a y-o-y increase of 3.0% in 2015.

Rail freight is to continue to dominate the sector in terms of turnover, which is projected to decline by 4% in 2015. We are seeing a consolidation of players in this freight transport mode, with major mining and steel producing firms selling their transport subsidiaries and major private logistics players developing in Russia's rail freight system.

Key Industry Trends

Uptick in Cargo Tonnage at Vostochny - Cargo tonnage at the port Vostochny will continue to expand in 2015, on the back of robust growth in Russia's coal exports via the Far Eastern port. BMI forecasts cargo tonnage to increase in 2015 to 22.7mn tonnes, based on an upward revision to our estimates for 2014.

Russia's Role in China's Export Supply Chains to Increase- Russia-China cooperation on the expansion of the Russian port in Zarubino will see Russia play a larger role in China's logistics sector. The expansion will shorten transit times for exports from the corn-rich Jilin region close to the border port and will increase Russia's role in China's agricultural supply chain.
