II annual conference CIS Rolling Stock Market, November 11, 2011, Moscow, Russia




High demand for freight cars in 2011 stipulated favorable conditions on CIS railway rolling stock market. Also prices for new cars are increasing that has made consumers to find additional financial sources. At the same time a deterrent factor for producers is the deficit of car casting.
Considering that car life of the majority of cars are expired, fleet owners should decide either write off or provide capital repair of the fleet with the prolongation of the term of use.
When will market balance be reached? How to manage the increasing fleet efficiently? Will the launch of new production capacity solve the problem of car casting deficit? What is the best way to extend the term of use? What are the most profitable financial instruments for fleet renewal?
