Renewed Eurasian Rail Alliance Index Portal

General Director of UTLC ERA JSC Alexey Grom commented on the launch of the upgraded Eurasian Rail Alliance Index portal.

The Eurasian Rail Alliance Index (ERAI) was introduced for the first time exactly a year ago, at PRO//Traffic.1520 Transport Logistics Forum. It is a unique instrument that allows any market player to decide on the delivery mode to use by means of assessing the cost of transportation via the longest leg of the Trans-Eurasian Route.

Ever since the ERAI index of transit railway transportation was introduced, it has enjoyed high demand and has had considerable influence on popularizing transit container transportation across Eurasia.

As the index developed, it became clear that companies which transport containers via the railroad system need to be aware of not only the indicator value of railway tariffs but the calculation method as well.

The first online platform of transit information analysis corresponds fully to the demands of the market. With the Eurasian Rail Alliance Index media resource, users are now capable of analyzing the development of transit transportation in terms of cargo classification, time needed to transport cargoes, and the throughput capacity of infrastructure via the 1520 space, etc.

Here everyone will be able to find just the information he or she needs. In particular, it provides the statistics of cargo transportation on the 1520 space. The section shows how transit transportation is done, and large volumes of statistical data provide a representative sample of transportation projects from Europe to China and back.

The portal will be of definite interest not only to permanent participants of the transportation process but to all those who do business in Eurasia, and those who simply need to move the product from point A to point B.

A number of unique functions presented at the portal allow to increase considerably the possibilities of the index, and that trend correlates nicely with the demands of the market. The Eurasian Rail Alliance Index as the unified information resource is a new tool that enables businesses to receive fast and accurate forecasts regarding all aspects of transporting cargoes on the 1520 space.
