Accident on BAM had no effect on Globaltrans operations

MOSCOW. Aug 29 (Interfax) - Traffic restrictions imposed on the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) railroad after the erosion of a section of railway tracks in Buryatia did not affect the operations of Globaltrans .

"No, they didn't, because at the moment, our logistics in that direction are not a significant part of our total volume of traffic. Most of our wagons in the eastern direction use the Trans-Siberian Railway," Director General Valery Shpakov told Interfax.

As reported, railway traffic along the BAM reopened on August 23. Due to erosion on the Baikal-Amur Mainline in Buryatia, Russian Railways imposed restrictions on the acceptance of goods headed east, and through-traffic along the BAM was suspended for several days.

Globaltrans specializes in the rail transportation of metallurgical cargo, oil products, construction cargo and coal.
