This paper prepared by TsNII (the All-Union Order of the Red Banner of Labor Scientific Railway Research Institute) presents general information on container traffic in the USSR. Topics covered include container designs, dimensions, and capacities, as well as container-handling techniques used by Soviet railroads. The paper states that containerization presently accounts for 70 percent of all less-than-carload freight shipments in the USSR and claims that this proportion could be increased to as much as 90 percent.
