Full Year Results

Link to Financial and operational results for the year ended 31 December 2017.

                     Exchange Rate 1 Russian Rouble equals 0.018 USA Dollar

Some Highlights

  • The Group's Freight Rail Turnover and Transportation Volumes stood broadly flat year on year
  • High fleet efficiency with further improved Empty Run Ratio resulting in reduced Empty Run Cost that would return journeys with no return cargo circa 37%.
  • Average Price per Trip up 20% year on year to RUB 34,790, reflecting the steady recovery in the gondola segment. Price increase of this magnitude, unlikely to be repeated.
