SC SERVTRANS INVEST SA ZILELE FEROVIARE - BUCURESTI, October 2006
The Private Freight Railways Operators
Starting with 2000 the Railway Operators with private capital had been established. In the present, on the Romanian railway good transport market acts a number of 27 operators, from which: 22 –for goods, 2 – for passengers and 1 – for goods and passengers. Because the OTF (Private Operators with private capital) appeared, the structure of the transport system is presenting, as follows: Constructions, Tourism and Transport Ministry SNTFM-CFR MARFA SA SNTFC-CFR CALATORI SA CNCF-CFR SA OTF with private capital …. SERVTRANS INVEST SA …… Legislation + rules AFER State Inspections The Traffic Circulation Control Transport Registry Certificates and diplomas Authorizations and degrees for transport personnel

These 27 private companies were transported in % from the total of the transported goods on the Romanian Rail Ways.

THE PLUS o The structure of Romanian Railway Systems is in accordance with E.U. recommendations. o The being and licensing procedures of the private companies are accesible and AFER has a very important role, concretized in objectivity and to promote E.U.-C.E. Directives, in the last 4 years. o CFR SA managed all system, right behavior face off all transport operators, and has assured equal and free access to infrastructures facilities. o We appreciate the open position of SNTFC to requests of private operators, that means a right behavior on the market, allow many cooperation with private operators, i.e. free depot access, revisions. We consider that was a positive role in free market.
The Minus o Monopoly position of CFR Marfa demonstrates uncooperative position and to limit the access at its facilities which have to be used by the other operators. o There are UNWRITTEN agreements which obstruct the access of private operators at international transports trough Hungary and Bulgaria. o The conditioning of clients to work exclusivity with national freight operator. o Discriminatory treatment of railway system than to road transport: - double taxes, TUI ( access railway taxes) and charging fuel ; - Romania is one of the few European states where the railway system pays road taxes, used for road transport development ; - missing of coherent system of payment for road transport similar with railway system, which, in fact, take on the goods from railway transport in advantage of road transport. o Different vision regarding the investments in the two mode transports : - The State expenses in road transport are understanding like necessary and assumed by itself ; - in railway transports the same expenses for infrastructure development are perceptible like subventions for covering black wholes ;
Consequences o The Infrastructure is in continuous degradations, closing routes, speed limitation, less capacity which are very difficult managed by CFR SA.That is going to a bad transport for clients, which many times choose the road transport. Ex. - CET Govora, CET Turceni, CET Turnu Severin, CET Bacau - Salt Industry, Cement Industry which take on 10 million tones/ year ; o We ask Ministry of Transport to involve more than, by Regulator Body in railway transport market and to correlate all system for transport development in Europe. l Main words are following : Railway transports in front of road transports !!! One Euro input in roads, one Euro input in railway !!!
