BAM and the Trans-Siberian: How to Build Faster?
Coal mining, metallurgical and oil companies build their own port infrastructure and sign international trade contracts. Yet I have never seen a container flow development strategy. Maybe we need to come up with one? We need to create our own union and draft a container strategy

We need fast solutions for intensifying construction works, for parallel works on crossovers, for purchasing railway automation systems and teleautomatics and for applying any methods that will help intensify construction works

BAM and the Trans-Siberian: How to Build Faster?
The surplus of specialized coal capacities in the Far East is over 50 mln tonnes. This is our reality. It is not just mining capacities, but transport and port capacities as well

BAM and the Trans-Siberian: How to Build Faster?
Russia is the world’s third biggest coal exporter. It was achieved through investments in mining capacities, port infrastructure and, of course, Russian Railways that are constructing the Eastern Polygon. <…> A total of 13 mln tonnes of coal has already shipped eastward through the west, which means higher transportation and freight costs. It drains our economy. This is why we need the Eastern Polygon so much

BAM and the Trans-Siberian: How to Build Faster?
Today, Asian countries account for 30% of all energy resource consumption. In 30 years, Asian countries will be consuming half the world’s energy. <…> Our main challenge is providing the planet with enough energy. The US is the leader in mining and exporting energy resources, and Russia is its main competition. It is Russia that has a unique opportunity to become the absolute leader in the energy resource market due to its geographical closeness to Asia. <…> We do need to develop the Eastern Polygon. The pace of its development has a direct impact on our country’s position in the world

BAM and the Trans-Siberian: How to Build Faster?
The cargo volumes going east will be growing significantly due to the sanctions and embargo… they get rerouted from west to east. We used to export 50 mln tonnes of coal to the European Union alone. All European countries, including Ukraine accounted for 70 mln tonnes. This is something that will be going eastward, instead of westward. If we add oil, petrochemicals, metals and fertilizers, experts estimate additional volumes to go eastward to be roughly 140 mln tonnes annually

Russia–Japan Business Dialogue
The cargo turnover of the Vostochny Port for the supply of high-quality coal to Japanese consumers is growing as well. Over the course of 2010s, the total volume of supplies reached 62 million tonnes, which is a good number. At the same time, the share of the Vostochny port in the total supplies of Russian coal to Japanese consumers is 42%, and it is growing steadily year over year

Russia–India Business Dialogue
The implementation of the eastern branch project, with the Baikal–Amur Mainline and the Trans-Siberian Railway, is playing a decisive role in increasing the volumes of coking coal being shipped to India. This is because the coal industry, Kuzbassrazrezugol, and the port sector are now able to move higher volumes

Bringing the Far East Closer: Approaches to Reducing Transport Costs
As production workers, steel workers, coal miners, and port workers, we understand the validity of this issue raised by Russian Railways that the indexation for consumer inflation is insufficient considering that industrial inflation is, of course, outpacing it. We understand that Russian Railways is infrastructure and not an office. This includes locomotives, rails, depots, serious equipment, and electrification. Of course, inflation continues
