Car Fleets

In 2012, the Russian freight car fleet grew 6.1% and reached its maximum level by the end of the year: 1,158.6 th. cars, including:

  • 899.3 th. cars from fleets owned by third parties;
  • 259.3 th. cars owned by “RZD” Holding Company.

The car fleet of “RZD” Holding Company decreased by 33.4%; the fleet of subsidiaries and affiliates of JSC “RZD” also decreased by 50.2%. These changes are due to the withdrawal of JSC “FFC” from the “RZD” Holding Company (car fleet — 191,191 pcs.) and CJSC “Rusagrotrans” (car fleet — 22,789 pcs.).

The car fleet of independent private companies grew 50.2% over the year; growth is reported for all car types, except for platforms.

However, the overall trends governing the Russian freight car fleet determine the growth rate of the fleet of thirdparty owners. Their priorities have remained unchanged: the fleet of open and oil cars is growing, while the number of covered cars is declining.
