Railway transportation: 

Countries where we deliver export, import, transit railway conventional wagon transportation:


Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kirghizstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.

The most appropriate routes and wagons are determined according to the starting and destination stations, type and quantity of goods. The most reasonable rate of freight is established.

The goods NHM code is very important in terms of establishing the freight rate. Tariffs are established according to the NHM code in the European and Middle Eastern countries, and according to the ETSNG code, which is a classified type of NHM, in the CIS countries.

In case miscellaneous goods are loaded in the wagon, the tariff system applied in the Europe and the Middle Eastern countries is different from that used in the CIS countries. Goods are classified as 1st Class and 2nd Class according to their NHM codes in many European countries including Turkey as well as the Middle Eastern countries. 2nd Class is subject to a cheaper freight rate compared to the 1st Class. The rate is calculated based on 1st Class if there are both 1st Class and 2nd Class goods in a wagon.

Tariffs determined according to the ETSNG code in the CIS countries make calculation of price difficult in the case of miscellaneous cargo. Unit price tariff and coefficients are established according to the ETSNG codes, and calculation is made accordingly. We need to know the ETSNG code of each type of goods to be loaded in the wagon as well as the gross weight of each in order to determine price. Price may change depending on the variation of type of goods as well as variation of gross weights in the wagon.
