RLL Container Report - 21 March 2018
While Kaliningrad seeks to restore the southern Baltic to its former glory, Finland and Norway are setting out to establish the northern Baltic as a new, intermodal corridor. Prior to 1945, Finland had access to the Barents Sea via their northern port at Petsamo sandwiched between Russia and Norway. Now, Oslo and Helsinki plan to finance the construction of a rail line connecting Oulu and Rovaniemi to the Norwegian ice-free port of Kirkenes on the Arctic Sea. Business interests in both the Scandinavian countries eye new opportunities to exploit the mineral riches in the far north, which are currently deprived of an economic and efficient means of transporting the exports to markets around the globe. The major attraction of the port of Kirkenes is the access it gives mineral exports to not only the West but also to the Far East.

Four years after it commenced, work on the new 6.7 km Baikal tunnel has been completed. This will remove a major bottleneck on the Transiberian Railway and will allow RZD to raise annual cargo capacity from 13 to 32.5 million tons when the new line opens in 2019. At the same time, the government in Moscow wants to reduce the transit time for container block trains from its eastern borders to the west to a mere seven days. Currently, container block trains take just under 10 days to the Russian capital. There is support within the Russian Railways for a plan to extend the broad gauge network as far as the outskirts of the Austrian capital, Vienna. However, one has to ask oneself if the additional expenditure of Euro 6.7 billion will bring any significant added-value to the broad gauge network.

Over the next six years, Russian Railways (RZD) plan to increase the volume of cargo moving along the Baikal-Amur and Transiberian railways by 50% to 180 million metric tons. At the same time, transit times on the rail routes from the Far East port of Vladivostok to the western borders of Russia will be slashed to a mere seven days. A shorter transit time would not only boost Russian production but would also be of great interest to the Chinese authorities, as they re-locate their industries from the crowded and more expensive coastal cities further inland. This year alone, China is investing USD 115 Billion in upgrading the rail infrastructure in central and western China, which will eventually lead to a reduction in transit times.

It was only seven weeks ago that the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta inaugurated the new standard-gauge line linking the capital, Nairobi with the country’s principal port, Mombasa on the Indian Ocean. In so doing, the president not only inaugurated a rail line but also unleashed a transport revolution that will transform Eastern Africa stretching from Ethiopia and Southern Sudan in the north to Malawi and Zimbabwe in the south. The newly-opened, standard-gauge railway has already slashed the journey time between the Kenyan capital and its main port from 12 to a mere 4 hours. At the same time, the cost of transporting a 20` unit from the port to the capital will be cut in half to USD 500.

If you follow this link to the RUPEC site (http://www.rupec.ru/news/37148/ ) you will find a picture of a PhosAgro warehouse full of Big Bags packed with fertilisers. In 2017, sales of PhosAgro fertilisers on the Russian market rose by 12.3% to 2.34 million tons and consumed three out of every ten tons produced by the fertiliser giant. The majority of both domestic and export shipments are transported in big or smaller bags by truck, rail or bulk vessels. In 2017, PhosAgro invested Rbl 600 million in upgrading its distribution network, which can now store at any one time 13% of annual production. Together with their two compatriots, Uralkali and Akron, Phosagro competes for a share of the global fertiliser market. This market, is, in turn, influenced by the rapid population growth and by the change in global diet.
