At the meeting in Kazakhstan Temir Zholy NC JSC under the chairmanship of the Head of the company Sauat Mynbayev discussed the results of work for 2018 and defined tasks for 2019.
According to the key parameters of production activities, 2018 was completed with positive results. $ 283 million tons of cargo has been transported, which is 11 million tons more than in 2017. Transit increased by 10 per cent to over $ 17 million tons. Trains carried about $ 18 million passengers. More than 1000 km of railway tracks have been renewed, including 867 km of overhaul.
At the same time, the debt burden caused a negative financial result for the year. In this regard, measures are taken to effectively use resources, optimize costs, ensure transparency of the procurement procedure, increase the personal responsibility of each Manager.
The main priority of the Company continues to be ensuring the safety of infrastructure and traffic safety. These two segments, in addition to investment, require constant attention and adaptation to changing conditions.
Among the priorities are also ensuring safe working conditions, achieving zero injuries (vision zero) in the workplace.
The meeting outlined the tasks for 2019 to increase the volume of transport and transit development. To improve efficiency and strengthen financial stability, the development strategy will be updated, changes will be made to the regulatory environment, tariff policy, and the organizational structure will be simplified. In the structure of KTZ NC JSC will remain only specialized companies associated with the main activity.
