The article discusses one of the approaches to reducing the volume of operating costs in the process of freight transportation by railway rolling stock. Recently, conditions have been created in the modern world for changing the usual and established for decades interstate logistics routes. In this situation, railroad land transportation was given the opportunity to really compete with sea transport, and even become an alternative to them. With regard to container transport, rail transport is the main component of both domestic and interstate traffic. Among other factors, the cost of the transportation process and, as a consequence, its competitiveness in the global logistics market of transport services depend on the performance indicators and the actual damageability of the rolling stock during its operation. In addition to losses associated with downtime and repair of rolling stock, such damage in the process of interstate transportation can lead to legal claims between the participants in the transportation process. To solve the existing problem, a technical solution has been developed that makes it possible to completely eliminate one of the typical types of damage to the wheels of a rolling stock during logistics operations at marshalling yards. The specified result is achieved by the introduction of the proposed non-volatile mechanical system "skid controller" on all manual slides. The proposed approach to solving the existing problem was successfully tested at several marshalling yards of rolling stock in the system of Russian Railways. It does not require significant capital and operating costs and contributes to an increase in the actual durability and safety of the rolling stock. This should have a positive effect on private and general traffic conditions.
