Ukrzaliznytsia loads 4.6 mln t of grain since early 2014

Ukrainian railways in the period from January 1 to February 26, 2014 loaded 4.569 million tonnes of grain (71,400 grain wagons).

A total of 4.226 million of grain was loaded for export (65,400 wagons) and 343,500 tonnes (1,298 wagons) for the domestic market.

The operating grain wagon fleet used in grain transportation totaled 10,285 as of early 2014. This amount is enough to carry 40 million tonnes of grain if cargo owners submit orders in advance and the railways operate according to schedule.

Earlier Ukrzaliznytsia said that cargo owners should submit preliminary orders to efficiently organize the process of grain transportation.
