Abstract: The article presents an analysis of tariffs for international freight traffic along the route Nur-Sultan station (Republic of Kazakhstan) - Mazare-Sharif station (Republic of Afghanistan). The freight charge is determined according to three existing methods for determining the freight charge: based on the Rail-Atlas and Rail-Tarif software package; Uniform Transit Tariff (UTT); International Transit Tariff (ITT). Calculations convincingly show the lowest tariffs for freight transportation, their availability for a wide range of railway customers. Moreover, the advantages of low-price tariffs are given in a tabular format, which creates convenience for users of railway services.
