Foreign investors are to be invited to participate in Ukrzaliznytsya’s project to build container freight terminals in its two main western rail hubs: Kovel in Volyn and Chop in Zakarpattia.

Foreign investors are to be invited to participate in Ukrzaliznytsya’s project to build container freight terminals in its two main western rail hubs: Kovel in Volyn and Chop in Zakarpattia. From Kovel, the railroad’s northwest hub, six rail lines radiate in all directions, most importantly to Izov, on the Polish border. The state railroad plans to electrify the 94 km of track between Izov and Kovel. From Chop, another border town, there are rail lines to Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Lviv. Yevgen Kravtsov, chairman of the railroad, says: “We are considering several mechanisms for interaction with potential partners, in particular, the creation of a joint venture in which Ukrzaliznytsia will become a participant by introducing a land plot or a long-term concession of a land plot for terminal construction.”
