Competing with trucks on the Kyiv – Odesa highway, Ukrzaliznytsya launched Tuesday a new container train route: Odesa Port – Dnipro – Liski, a total of 628 km

Competing with trucks on the Kyiv – Odesa highway, Ukrzaliznytsya launched Tuesday a new container train route: Odesa Port – Dnipro – Liski, a total of 628 km. Liski is the truck-train depot on Kyiv’s Left Bank, near Lisova metro station. Configured to carry 60 containers, the weekly train is to leave Odesa on Tuesday afternoons at 1:00 pm, arriving at 7:00 am the following mornings in Liski. Last year, Odesa handled 519,000 containers or 72% of the total trans shipped by Ukraine’s seaports. This spring, Ukrzaliznytsia started running two container trains a week from Odesa to Rozhnyativ, a railroad junction town in Ivano-Frankivsk. In February, the state railroad started running a regular container train from Yuzhny Port to Liski. Yevhen Kravtsev, railway chairman, sees demand rising for regular, reliable container transportation, saying: “In the first half of this year, Ukrzaliznytsya transported more than 143,500 containers, which is 23% more than in the same period last year.”
