• RESEARCH OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF PERFORMANCES IN RAIL PASSENGER AND FREIGHT TRANSPORT IN COMPARISON WITH SELECTED ECONOMIC INDICATORS

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 1 (2016), Issue 2, pg(s) 16-18

    The paper deals with analysis of the development of performances in freight rail transport in comparison with the development of gross domestic product as the main indicator measuring the economic performance of the country and on the other hand the performances in passenger rail transport in relation to the development of the average monthly wage as one of the most important indicator characterizing the living standard. The change in demand for transport services is analysed with respect to the change in the price of the ticket in passenger rail transport and also the change in the price for transport of one tonne of goods in freight rail transport.

  • DETERMINE THE OPTIMAL ROUTE OF THE ROUTING OF THE SINGLE WAGONS METHOD CPM ON THE NETWORK ŽSR

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 9 (2015), Issue 10, pg(s) 33-36

    In the sector of railway freight transport is considerable part of performance carried out through the transportation of single wagons from the departure station to the destination station which show decreasing trend in the last period. Currently, the transportation of the single wagons is realized according to long term established procedures, which do not take into account its direction on the basis of the optimal costs for the individual carriers on the network of ŽSR. Transportation of single wagons is realized based on train formation, which is regularly analyzed and adjusted on the basis of strength of wagons lane and requirements of the Business Department. By the application of different optimization methods it is possible to achieve reengineering of these procedures and optimize costs. The paper deals with the reengineering of the single wagons routing by application Critical Path Method (CPM) on the selected particular traffic relation on the network of ŽSR. Through application of CPM method and by reengineering of technological processes it is possible to achieve cost savings for the customer as well as for the carrier for the carriage of goods and truncation the delivery time of shipment to the customer as well as to increase the competitiveness of the railway company.

  • EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF LIBERALIZATION OF THE RAIL FREIGHT MARKET IN SLOVAKIA

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 9 (2015), Issue 10, pg(s) 29-32

    Actual problems from the point of view of sustainable transport are limited capacity and level of transport infrastructure and major differences between the capacity and quality of transport infrastructure in western and eastern Europe. Subvention of multi-modal chains in the country is highly differentiated from high subvention towards environmentally friendly mode of transport to very little subvention from the state. The paper deals with legislation relative to conditions of the railway freight transport market liberalisation structure of international documents and national law, conditions of access companies to transport infrastructure and business conditions in the railway transport market. In Slovak republic it was changed of charging schemes for rail infrastructure from 1.1. 2011. We have researched impact this change to modal split. The paper presents measures to improve competitiveness of railway freight transport.
