Lithuanian Railways has started transporting oil products for Ukraine, bypassing Belarus.
The LTG Cargo company, part of the Lithuanian Railways group, has started the transportation of oil products produced by the Orlen Lietuva enterprise for Ukraine, bypassing Belarus, writes the Lithuanian publication Obzor.lt. The company plans to transport such cargo two or three times a week and bring its monthly volumes up to 30,000 tons by the end of the summer. LTG Cargo transports petroleum products between the Močkava (Lithuania) and Trakiški (Poland) terminals. The route runs through Poland to the Jagodyn crossing point on the border with Ukraine, and Polish and Ukrzaliznytsia carriers contribute to transportation. In recent weeks, 12 trains with more than 12,000 tons of oil products left for Ukraine on this route.
