The Ukrainian Railways joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia) transported 10.302 million tons of cargo in July, which is 9.2% more than it transported in June.

Ukrzaliznytsia’s Board Chairman Oleksandr Kamyshin announced this, the CFTS portal reports.

"Transportation of domestic goods, as well as transportation of export and import goods, increased. Only transit did not increase because it is practically non-existent. The transportation of most of our key cargoes – grain, ore, coal, ferrous metals, diesel, building materials, etc. – increased. The transportation of cars, coke, scrap metal, salt, and oil collapsed. Yes, the growth is slow. I hope that the unblocking of seaports for grain exports will help us increase grain exports faster," he said.

According to the latest data, the company transported 542,000 tons of crude oil and petroleum products (a 12.2% increase), 2.033 million tons of ore (3.2% increase), 1.462 million tons of grain (7.2% increase), and 6.266 million tons of other cargoes (11.6% increase) in July.

Domestically, Ukrzaliznytsia transported 6.2 million tons of freight in July, which is 10.5% more than the volume it transported in June.

It transported 3.4 million tons of export cargoes in July, which is 8.7% more than the volume it transported in June.

Ukrzaliznytsia also transported 598,800 tons of imported cargoes in July, which is 4.5 times more than the volume it transported in June.
