The Chairman of the Board of ISR Trans reasons about the need of technological innovations and investments into employee training
Pipeline not an obstacle
In the conditions of tough competition between the railway and pipeline transport for oil products, RZD JSC (Russian Railways) is losing high-yield cargo. Despite the preservation of this trend, the decreasing quality of raw materials during transportation remains the main shortcoming of pipeline transport. Delivery of goods along trunk oil pipelines has indeed a number of competitive advantages, but the railway has an incomparably more ramified network, correspondingly, greater opportunities for maneuver. Another significant advantage in favor of “steel trunklines” is their ability to transport all types of petroleum products. Rakhman Khalilov, the Chairman of the Management Board of ISR Trans LLC, shares his views on how the Russia-based forwarding company, which specializes in transportation of oil cargo by rail, successfully copes with current difficulties in the industry.
The railway operator “ISR Trans” plans to start operating gas tank containers next year, and the Taganrog tanker fleet, associated with this company, intends to order new tankers.
On November 16, 2017, the Chairman of the Board of the Limited Liability Company “ISR Trans” Rahman Khalilov visited the Taganrog Fuel Oil Terminal (TMT) to inspect the result of the work on transferring capacities to transshipment of base oils and light oil products and assessing the enterprise's readiness to work during the winter period in 2017 - 2018.
"ISR Trans" LLC was among the 50 largest transport and logistics companies in Russia according to the results of the rating of the analytical center "Expert" for 2016. The rating was compiled on the basis of analysis of the company's revenues from transportation and logistics activities, handling and reloading operations, forwarding and logistics services, provision of vehicles and infrastructure for rent, etc.
Every year the event brings together Russian operators of railway rolling stock, railway carrier, cargo owners and state regulators who, in an open dialogue format, discuss key innovations in the railway transportation market, their impact on the participants of the process and on the basis of a full range of opinions form a further sectoral agenda.
To the order of the Limited Liability Company “ISR Trans”, the Joint-Stock Company “Novozybkovsky Machine Building Plant” builds innovative tank cars
Within the framework of the rolling stock renewal program, the Limited Liability Company “ISR Trans” has signed a contract with the Joint-Stock Company “Novozybkovsky Machine Building Plant” for production of tank cars of an innovative frameless design, for transportation of bulk cargoes, including petroleum products. In the course of implementation of the project, the partnership envisages running trials for the latest product, with its subsequent certification.
In September 2017 TTF tankers have shipped the anniversary one million ton of liquid cargo. At the same time overall transported volume over nine months has exceeded figures for the same period of 2016 year by 15%.
All Company vessels are involved in transportation of clean, dirty petroleum products as well as crude oil, thereby enabling effective use of fleet in a highly competitive environment.
