Measurements of the nuclear modification factor for charged hadrons is an indirect way to understand the jet energy loss mechanism. Charged hadron spectra were measured in Pb+Pb, p+Pb and pp collisions at sqrt(s), sqrt(s_NN)=5.02 TeV. The higher statistical significance of the Pb+Pb data sample with the total integrated luminosity of 0.49nb^-1, p+Pb sample of 25nb^-1 and pp sample of 25pb^-1 allows high precision measurements of the charged hadron spectra and of the nuclear modification factors. The results are presented in wide transverse momentum ranges and investigated in different centrality and rapidity intervals.
