The two company heads met during a three-day working visit of a delegation of Uzbekistan Railways to Moscow.

The transition to unified technologies will increase the reliability and transparency of rail transportation, reduce the time required for cargo clearance, and, as a result, contribute to the expansion of the freight base between the two countries.

The experts from Uzbekistan studied the experience of Russian Railways in the Company’s digital transformation, visited the Main Control Centre and the Transportation Control Centre of Russian Railways, and became acquainted with the organization of the Moscow Central Ring.

During the meeting, the company heads also discussed cooperation on reforming rail transport in Uzbekistan and the development of transport and logistics services.

In addition, experts from the two railway companies looked at practical steps aimed at developing the Russia–Uzbekistan agro-logistics corridor and launching the Agroexpress fast-track refrigerated container (reefer) train.

2021 is the European Year of Rail Russia Uzbekistan Railways

Friday, 1 January 2021, marked the beginning of the European Year of Rail. The European Year of Rail is an initiative of the European Commission.

It will highlight the benefits of rail as a sustainable, smart, and safe means of transport.

A variety of activities will put rail in the spotlight throughout 2021 across the continent, to encourage the use of rail by both citizens and businesses and to contribute to the EU Green Deal goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2050.

Adina Vălean, Commissioner for Transport, said: “Our future mobility needs to be sustainable, safe, comfortable and affordable. Rail offers all of that and much more! The European Year of Rail gives us the opportunity to re-discover this mode of transport. Through a variety of actions, we will use this occasion to help rail realise its full potential. I invite all of you to be part of the European Year of Rail.”

In the EU, rail is responsible for less than 0.5% of transport-related greenhouse gas emissions. This makes it one of the most sustainable forms of passenger and freight transport. Among other benefits, rail is also exceptionally safe and it connects people and businesses across the EU via the Trans-European Transport network (TEN-T).
