About one third of major rail freight customers are ready to buy locomotives and run their own trains

About one third of major rail freight customers are ready to buy locomotives and run their own trains, according to a survey by the Ukrainian Logistics Alliance. In the survey, two thirds said poor freight service by the state railroad forced them this year to use alternatives, generally trucks. Looking to next year, 83% of companies surveyed said they are setting up back up plans if train service fails them. The government is preparing a new bill to submit to the Rada next year to allow for private freight trains.
