Indian railways recorded the best-ever monthly freight loading at 122.14 MT in July 2022, driven by incremental loading of cement & clinker and containers. The incremental loading in July 2022 stood at 9.3 MT, an increase of 8.25% compared to July 2021.

Another notable aspect of the freight business in FY 2022–23 was the rise in automobile loading. In total, 1,698 rakes were loaded during April-July compared to 994 rakes loaded during the same period last year, an increase of 71%.

One of the main aspects of the freight performance in July was the persistent efforts of Indian railways to improve the supply of coal to power plants in close coordination with the Ministry of Power and Coal.
