The war in Ukraine has created an unprecedented stress test for the global freight supply chain. Particularly acute was the issue of importing containers, which in February were already en route to Ukraine.
In the ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge, Belgian customs blocked the shipment of about 1.5 thousand cargo containers to Russia.
Ukraine expects the second container train from China. The cargo will be delivered via an alternative route – using rail and sea transport.
On Sunday, August 29th, a cargo train with 50 containers departed from the city of Chongqing in southwestern China to Kyiv.
For the first time containers with special awnings were loaded in SE “Mariupol Commercial Sea Port”.
