Ukraine. “Ukrzaliznytsia” expects cargo rates increase in October


In the updated draft financial plan for 2017, PJSC “Ukrzaliznytsia” expects that in October, cargo transportation rates will be indexed by 22.5%. As a reminder, acting head of Ukrainian Railways Ievgeniy Kravtsov hopes that it will be possible to switch to annual change in tariffs depending on the index of industrial prices. In his opinion, this will be an objective mechanism for indexing the tariffs, reports UkrAgroConsult.

In early summer, “Ukrzaliznytsia” suggested business to agree on new principles for freight traffic tariffs formation for a period of 3-5 years, starting from 2019. At the beginning of the year, “Ukrzaliznytsia” hoped that tariffs for railway transportation in the country would grow by 25% from February, but the State Regulatory Service refused to agree on a corresponding draft order of the Ministry of Infrastructure.
