At the end of April, a meeting between LTG Cargo Ukraine and UkrFerry took place in Odessa, where representatives of the companies discussed the progress of the multimodal project on the transportation of semi-trailers on the route Turkey (Karasu) – Chernomorsk – Klaipeda – Karlsham. During the meeting, the preparation of the terminals for loading semi-trailers, the production of rolling stocks and other relevant issues were talked over. Soon, the participants of the multimodal memorandum intend to apply to Ukrainian authorities for the pilot transportation of semi-trailers by rail.
A multimodal memorandum was signed in Kiev this year, on March 18. Four more new participants have joined the memorandum since – Baltic Transfers, DFDS, TT-Line and BTLC Ukraine. KARLSHAMNS HAMN AB (Port of Karlshamn) and Green Cargo intend to join the project shortly. Companies from Turkey are also expected to join the memorandum.
