Russian Railways Logistics organized delivery of 100-meter rails for Moscow Metro
Russian Railways Logistics organized delivery of 100-meter rails produced by EVRAZ Consolidated West-Siberian Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ ZSMK) for the Moscow Metro. The first batch with 60 rails (389 tons) arrived at December, 25 at Lyublino-Sortirovochnoe station from Novokuznetsk. 

Up to the present time EVRAZ ZSMK has been addressing the cargo for Russian Railways JSC only. RZD Logistics managed to provide specialized rolling stock and organized rails delivery at shortest time. It took five days for seven inventory platforms and escort railcar to get to Moscow. 

EVRAZ Consolidated West-Siberian Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ ZSMK) is the only company in Russia and CIS (as well as the world's third largest company) producing and supplying 100-meter rails which are considered to be an innovative product. It became possible due to rail and beam shop reconstruction in 2009. Currently rail and beam shop production capacity is as high as 950 thousand tons of rail products per year.
