Russia Freight Transport Report Q4 2014 - New Study Released

New Transportation market report from Business Monitor International: "Russia Freight Transport Report Q4 2014"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/23/2014 -- Following a year which BMI believes saw a mixed growth pattern across Russia's freight transport sector, 2014 will signal another tough year, with some of the freight modes forecast to decline or struggle to grow in terms of freight volumes.

Total trade is projected to pick up with our Country Risk desk forecasting a y-o-y increase of 3.75% in 2014 following an estimated growth of 4.05% in 2013.

Rail freight is to continue to dominate the sector in terms of turnover, which is projected to grow by 6% in 2014. 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.

We also highlight the impact that the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games will have on this year's results. All freight modes are set to benefit, specifically those in the Krasnodar region.

The final theme is Russia's recent membership of the WTO. As President Vladimir Putin has highlighted, the benefits of an uptick in trade volumes won't be felt straight away, but we believe Russia's freight transport sector will start to feel a positive impact over the medium term.
