From the beginning of the year Kuibyshev railroad has transported about 2,8 million tons of oil freights – by 8% more than for the same period of time in 2008. The news-service of the railroad reports for the first time in this year in August the volume of transported oil products on Kuibyshev railroad has exceeded the last year level. In a whole more than 4,9 million tons of freights have been transported in August and this is by 2% more than the pre-planned indices but by 11,6% less than in 2008. The structure of the transported freights also changed, as compared with the same period of time in 2008: thus, the share of oil products increased from 46,6 to 56,9%, the share of industrial raw materials – from 7,4 to 7,5% and the share of cement – from 3 to 4,2%.
