State Federal Tariff Service

In late 2008, the State Federal Tariff Service on the railroad twice with 0.72 to 0.36 reduced the rates of tariff rates for transportation of cars on Russian railways in the country at a distance of over 1,000 km and up to 3,000 kilometers, inclusive. Now, transfer one unit of commodity machines, in contrast to the transport vehicle transporters in Russia, in-car grid at a distance of 3,000 km would cost AvtoVAZ in 4600 rubles against 9.2 thousand. And so, if still about 95% of all VAZovsoy products for domestic transportation market cars were delivered to Russia transporters, but now because of government subsidies for rail transport of AvtoVAZ and other manufacturers become more profitable. The signed a tripartite agreement, on the one hand, and Russian Railways RZD and RailTransAuto in 2009-2011, will carry up to 400 thousand cars per year Togliatti, against 50 000 VAZ earlier. A maritime transport has little effect and may only be exercised during the navigation season, which significantly limits the ability of transport vehicles for values over time. Most routes run through Baltic Sea in the west of Russia and the South through the Black Sea ports. A supply of cars to Russia in the Asia-Pacific region has complicated the situation of port of the Far East. Imported cars became more and construction of new ports avtoterminaly for their acceptance and handling.

On the other – to export these cars are nothing. JSC "RZD" imposed a ban on transportation of cars in the postal and baggage cars, and specialized transporters catastrophic enough. And since the fall of the market sales of foreign cars in Russia in the first two months of this year, already up 36%. At the same sale in the regions falling more rapidly than in central urban areas. The exception is only the North-West Federal District, where the decline was only 25%.
