Industry outlook

Containerisation is a structural trend for the Russian market and should support revenue and profit growth for TransContainer, in our view. Currently, only c 7% of Russia’s potentially containerisable rail cargo is transported in containers and, although this figure rose from 2.2% in 2001, it is still much lower than in the US (18%), India (16%) and Europe (14%).
