On April 6, 2018, JSC “Vostochny Port”, the largest Russian specialized port with a hi-tech transshipment of coal and a member of the port coal holding “Managing Port Company", set a new record for the daily unloading of open railcars over the winter period -1,117 open railcars. This new record exceeds the JSC “Russian Railways” norm of 1,070 open railcars and the previously achieved record figure of 1,096 open railcars. The share of the innovative open railcars with the increased cargo capacity represented 79.5% (888 units).

On April 6, the total discharge volume exceeded 82.8 thousand tons of premium quality coal. In comparison, on April 6, 2017, within the 24 hours period of time, 928 open railcars and 67.4 thousand tons of coal were unloaded.

It was possible to achieve the high result owing to the seamless interaction of the port workers and the workers of the station “Nakhodka-Vostochnaya” of the Far-Eastern Railway; as well as due to the timely delivery of loaded trains to the coal terminal and the dispatch of empty trains from the port territory. An important role was played by the professional and coordinated actions of six teams of the cargo handling complexes: shift 304 (shift supervisor Ilya Kondratovich), shift 301 (shift supervisor Rezvan Musaev), shift 303 (shift supervisor Vladimir Chentsov), shift 101-1 (shift supervisor Nadezhda Danilova), shift 101-2 (shift supervisor Igor Pokrashenko), and shift 101-4 (shift supervisor Vitaly Surtaev).

As a reminder, the previous record of "Vostochny Port" was set on March 19, 2018: 1,096 open railcars and 81 thousand tons of coal were unloaded for that day.
