Ukraine’s second multimodal terminal – moving containers from trucks to trains – has opened in Klevan, Rivne region.
This ‘dry port’ on a 10-hectare lot is designed to handle 2,000 containers a month. Due to the lack of such cargo hubs, 80% of containers in Ukraine move by trucks on highways. Although growing fast, containers account for only 1% of all rail traffic as measured by weight. In Europe, containers account for 45% of rail cargo.
