Ukraine. Ukrainian Railways told about freight transportation problems
The company says the Ukrainian Railways’ share in the overall railcar fleet has fallen abruptly since 2018 (from 51% to 16% in 2020) because of a rise in the number of private railcars. Slow railcar turnover results from improper dispatching.
Consequently, the amount of fines paid for late freight delivery has increased tenfold since two years ago. The Ukrainian Railways pointed out an overdue need for repairing 37% of currently exploited main line tracks. This is the main reason for issuing train speed limit warnings, UkrAgroConsult reports.
