 Double bottomed order portfolio: Why did car fleet renewal campaign fail to spur the rail car building in Ukraine? Does the country need innovative wagons?

  • home demand, potential of Ukraine’s rail car building industry
  • maximum application of overall dimensions in wagon design
  • investment in innovation
  • warranty and post-warranty service of innovative wagons
  • fair pricing

Pay less – earn more! Priorities of public procurement: either low prices or life cycle expenses.

  • rules of fair business and a modern approach to procurement
  • price and quality – which criterion is more important
  • “unsportsmanlike” behavior of players, how to avoid it

 New wagons VS restored ones: economic feasibility and operational efficiency of the restored car fleet in comparison with the new rolling stock. Wagons from the Customs Union secondary market: renting/buying and extending their service life.

  • analysis of costs of extending the service life – flaw detection, major repairs, certification
  • opportunities for modernization
  • comparative analysis of operating costs – run between overhauls, repairs and spare parts

 What will drive the locomotive building in Ukraine – strategic alliances or own searches?

  • certification rules of rail car repair enterprises – how to stimulate competition
  • case for creating your own rail car repair company

 Rolling stock health supervision – the way the rules are going to change

  • systems providing non-uncoupling detection of bogie elements, body geometry control, monitoring of temperature of axle boxes, etc.

 CUR-2 (current uncoupled repair). Operator’s phantom pain: has a wagon been really repaired?

  • obtrusive service of uncoupled repair
  • responsibilities of parties
  • how much infrastructure affects technical state of a wagon
  • implementation of remote monitoring of state of a wagon
  • service network in Ukraine
  • cost of CUR-2, namely mileage to/from the depot, repairs and spare parts, wagon downtime and penalties, as an additional component of a rent rate

 Scatter, Leak, Drying, Spillage: how to protect the cargo on the railway and preserve its quality and volume?

  • cargo security: theft – who is to blame and what to do
  • methods of cargo security on the railway
  • grain traders’ requests for rolling stock redesigning, sealing, etc.

 To hear everyone: How to break the vicious circle and find a compromise among market participants’ interests?
