During the 28 days of September, 2 million 728 thousand tons of grain cargoes were transported by railway for export. This was discussed during a meeting with representatives of the agricultural market on September 29.

As Valery Tkachov, deputy director of the commercial department of Ukrzaliznytsia JSC, said, since the beginning of September, 2,728,000 tons have been transported for export. Of these, 808,000 tons were transported through the western border crossings. Among the leaders in the transfer of wagons are Izów (Poland), Batyovo (Hungary) and Jagodyn (Poland).

At the same time, 1 million 920 thousand tons of grain were transported for export through sea ports.

“Thanks to the opening of the “grain corridor”, the transportation of grain for export by rail has increased significantly, one might say doubled,” the UZ representative emphasized.

He also expressed hope that by the end of September approximately 3 million tons of grain will be transported by railway for export.

In addition, Valery Tkachev spoke about the positive dynamics of grain loading. In particular, recently this indicator has been consistently exceeding 100,000 tons per day. And in general, 2 million 634 thousand tons were loaded in 28 days of September. This is 27.9% of the total indicator, which reached 9 million 429 thousand tons.

We will remind that in August, 2 million 87 thousand tons of grain were transported.
