As reported by INFOLine-Analytics, Russia manufactured a total of 78.2 thousand freight railcars in 2019, which represents an increase of 9.8% year-over-year. The production of freight cars in Russia is expected to fall in 2020 due to the global crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, a decline in freight loading and a surplus of cars on the rail network.
