MOSCOW, April 11. /ITAR-TASS/. FPK-Logistika OJSC, a subsidiary of Federal Passenger Company (FPK) OJSC that belongs to Russian Railways (RZD) OJSC, Russia’s national railway operator, stated about granting discounts for freight rail shipments of products made in the Russian Republic of Crimea to Russia, FPK-Logistika said in a statement on its website on Friday.
“At present, due to closed border with Ukraine economic ties in Crimea are ruined that threatens local business and wellbeing of local residents,” the statement reads. “To support Crimean business the FPK-Logistika general director has issued an order introducing special terms of Crimean freight delivery to Russia. The discount on delivery on goods made in Crimea amounted to 15%,” it runs.
These shipment terms will be in effect on all FPK-Logistika routes from April 14 to June 30, 2014 if documents are produced to verify that products are manufactured in Crimea, the company said in the statement.
FPK-Logistika OJSC was set up by the Federal Passenger Company to provide shipping services in luggage wagons of passenger trains (FPK) on international routes. The Federal Passenger Company is the largest passenger long-distance train carrier and Russian Railways owns the full stock of the company. As many as 110.7 million passengers that are five percent lower than in the previous year were trafficked in long-distance trains in 2013.
