The range of issues faced by transportation & logistics companies strongly varies depending on the type of transportation. On the one hand, there is railway transportation, with Russian Railways enjoying a monopoly and tight tariff regulations predominant in most segments, and on the other hand, there is a highly fragmented car transportation sector with very loose state regulation.
Transportation & logistics development trends have been driven by shifts in customer preferences from cargo transportation to the provision of comprehensive services, including multimodal transportation, cargo processing (with sorting, palletising and consolidation at logistics terminals) and even customer supply chain management. The market is also being influenced by structural reform of the railways, with the privatisation of wagon fleets and the setting-up of a private carrier pool scheduled for the upcoming years. Big cities are planning for the introduction of a number of measures aimed at decreasing the number of trucks on their streets and road networks, which will lead to the redistribution of cargo flows among alternative types of transportation. This needs be taken into account by transportation companies when planning any potential moves in the market.
