The Ukraine belongs to the main suppliers of cereals and other agricultural crops to the world market, and is nicknamed the granary of Europe. Due to the Russian blockade of Black Sea ports, the Ukraine is facing major problems in exporting agricultural products. Trains are a certain alternative to maritime transport.
After delivering humanitarian aid and military equipment to the Ukraine, CD Cargo, in cooperation with other partners, has taken the first train with corn from the Ukraine to the German port of Brake. From there, the shipment continued by ship to Egypt.
“The train carried about 1800 t of corn, which was loaded into the Uagps standard gauge wagons at the TKD transhipment depot in Dobrá near Cierna nad Tisou,” explained the Chairman of the CD Cargo Board of Directors, Tomáš Tóth.
