KHABAROVSK, February 19. /TASS/. 104 trains are crowded on the Russia’s Far East and over six thousand railcars are at stations in Khabarovsk and Primorsky Regions, Head of Far Eastern Railway Nikolay Maklygin said on Friday. Cargo seaports turned out to be unable to handle all the goods, he added.
"One hundred and four cargo trains are not moving and are actually ‘abandoned’ at the Far Eastern Railway. 6,073 railcars are in them in total. We are challenged by clearly negative dynamics of ‘abandoned trains’ in February: the figure is 67.3% already, while it was not more than 10% of the total traffic in January," Maklygin said.
"Nonconformity of actual handling capacity of ports to goods transported by the railway," shortage of warehouses, erratic supplies of goods, malfunctions of unloading equipment and deficit of dock workers are main drivers of the situation, the official said.
The Far Eastern Railway is currently operating in conditions of growing freight traffic to Russian Pacific ports.
