By News Editor / Updated: 01 Aug 2014
From January 2011 a new railway logistic centre is being built on the Polish-Ukrainian border. The project aims to accelerate decision processes and achieve quicker reactions towards market changes.
PKP Cargo - the Polish Railway Cargo operator has formed a new corporation to improve railway freight transportation between Poland and Ukraine. The project aims to accelerate decision processes and achieve quicker reactions towards market changes

In the past few years a steady growth of cargo import has been observed. Therefore in Medyka-Zurawica - Polish side of the railway border crossing - the demand for transhipment has grown. The new Polish corporation will operate the logistic centre for all the rail transport entering and leaving Ukraine. The centre will expand the potential of the railway border crossing, that includes reloading, storage, segregation, packaging, crushing and other necessary services.
The management also states, that the centre will give many job opportunities in this time of economic crisis.

Until now PKP Cargo has not been able to operate on all the goods that are demanded. So far it has been ore, metals, building materials. The prognosis assumes a 5% growth and an extension of the range of goods to include coal, wood and grain. A similar project has already been completed in Malaszewicze, on the Polish-Belarus borded. After completing a new logistic centre there, the “modal split” of railway freight in the region went up by almost 14 % in the first 9 months.
