Hapag-Lloyd offering block train connections in Ukraine

As of January 2021 we have introduced three block train connections in Ukraine.

The trains complement the current domestic service from the port city of Odessa to the main Ukrainian industrial locations of Kharkiv (UAHRK), Dnipro (UADNK) and Kiev (UAIEV).

The rail service will be provided by NUNIT, the intermodal company of TransInvestService (TIS), the largest private terminal operator in Ukraine. The partnership will enable Hapag-Lloyd to offer three weekly block trains, made up of 30 to 45 platforms each, as well as to use the depots and facilities of TIS for the on-site storage and stowage of the cargo.

Our customers now benefit from improved reliability in deliveries as transit times are significantly shorter and trains reach destinations without stops. In addition, Hapag-Lloyd will offer tailor-made intermodal solutions that best fit the customers´ specific requirements. Our team in Ukraine organizes the delivery of cargo and minimizes delays while optimizing safe transport conditions.

Ukraine is a strategically important market in Eastern Europe. It has been growing steadily for the past four years. As one of the world's largest agricultural producers, the country ranks number five in global rail freight transport. Hapag-Lloyd has also continued to grow in Ukraine since 2018 and is striving for further growth in the country.

We are very much looking forward to further supporting you in expanding your business in Ukraine.
