UKRAINE: The LTG Cargo Ukraine subsidiary of Lithuania’s national railway has restarted its activities, noting that there has been a significant increase in demand for the export of grain and other products from Ukraine.
LTG Cargo Ukraine temporarily suspended operations in March following the Russian invasion. Parent company LTG Cargo and its Polish business LTG Cargo Polska have since been making targeted efforts to facilitate the use of routes via Poland, avoiding the need to transit Belarus.
LTG Cargo Ukraine is being reactivated to provide freight forwarding services and help customers organise international transport via Poland and Lithuania. To ensure the safety of its employees, the company expects to carry out its activities remotely.
‘This reopening allows us to contribute to even more efficient logistics solutions and continue to help Ukrainian customers to transport goods, in particular grain, oil and corn, outside the country’, said CEO Saulius Stasiūnas. ‘In doing this, we will continue co-operation with Ukrzaliznytsia to join efforts in making the Ukrainian-Polish border crossing and freight transhipping at the Ukrainian border stations as smooth as possible.’
