Seasonal loading of salt completed in the Astrakhan region


In the Astrakhan region, the seasonal shipment of salt mined from Lake Baskunchak has ended. Over the past season, more than 344,000 tons of technical salt (halite) was sent from the Nizhny Baskunchak station to the Vladimirskaya Pristan station. It carried out the transshipment of products of Russalt from rail transport to water transport.

In order to increase the efficiency of the transportation process, employees of the Volga Railway carried out dispatch control over the progress of cars and their supply for loading. Compared to previous years, the length of the sent trains has increased: from 27 to 40 wagons per run.
