The TIS company intends to launch another container train from the Yuzhny seaport’s TIS terminal to Kharkiv in the near future. The TIS company announced this on its Facebook page on August 10, the CFTS portal reports.
"We are also actively developing containerized rail transport at TIS. Weekly container trains are already operating from TIS to Dnipro and Kyiv. A train to Kharkiv and two other cities will soon be launched," the company wrote.
The two other cities could be Ternopil and Vinnytsia, the launch of container trains to which the TIS announced back in April. Three more regular container trains to Ternopil, Kharkiv, and Vinnytsia will be launched in the next 1.5-2 months," the TIS Container Terminal’s head Yehor Hrebennykov said while welcoming the first vessel of the Maersk Line’s ME3 service.
As reported, a container train launched jointly by the Ukrainian Railways public joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia), the Maersk Line, and LLC TIS began operating from Kyiv (the Liski station) to the TIS terminal (the Chornomorska station) on January 31 this year.
The TIS company switched to weekly operation of another container train from the Yuzhny seaport to the Dnipro river port on September 6, 2017. The train began test operation in May 2017.
In addition, as the CFTS reported, an Ukrzaliznytsia container train began test operation between the Odesa port and Dnipro-Liski route on July 31.
