Ukrzaliznytsia develops logistics routes for grain export
JSC “Ukrzaliznytsia” is working on the logistics of grain delivery to the border with Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland, from where the grain will go to the ports and logistics hubs of European countries.
This was reported by the press service of the company.
“The illegal Russian military aggression has led to the virtual closure of the ports through which Ukraine exports agricultural products to consumers in the world. This is not only a Ukrainian problem, the share of Ukrainian grain in the world market is 11%, the share of sunflower oil is 55%. Every tenth loaf of bread in the world is baked from Ukrainian grain. The war against Ukraine threatens the whole world with food shortages. In order to avoid a global food crisis and save Ukrainian exports, Ukrzaliznytsia is ready to urgently organize the delivery of agricultural products by rail,” the message says.
The logistics of grain delivery to the border with Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland are already being worked out, from where the grain will be delivered to the ports and logistics hubs of European countries.
