Wagons of PJSC “Ukrzaliznytsia” will be leased on electronic auctions ProZorro.Sale.
The corresponding agreement on the implementation of the pilot project was signed by the leaders of the “Ukrzaliznytsya” and GP “Prozora.Sale”, the press service of the Ministry of economic development and trade.
The pilot project will last a year, after which may be extended.
The Ministry expects that the first auction for the lease of freight cars may appear on ProZorro in November.
“Since November, our company is starting to rent out their own cars through the electronic marketplace. Thus we provide a transparent and practical mechanism for obtaining “Ukrzaliznytsya” market value for the use of wagons by our customers. A clear position in price will eliminate the opportunity for corruption and manipulation,” wrote acting head of the UZ Evgeny Kravtsov in Facebook.
According to him, a year ago, “Ukrzaliznytsya” sold its services for freight transport 5-7 times cheaper. Thus a shortfall in the millions. The difference between the fixed price and the market value was in the hands of intermediaries and provoked corruption in the railroad, said Kravtsov.
On the electronic auction will be put up 5% of empty rolling stock, and their results will be determined price for the entire car fleet by types and specific date.
According to the agreement, ProZorro.The sale will also be used to conduct electronic auctions for the disposal, transfer for use, lease of property belonging to the “Ukrzaliznytsia”.
