Representatives of the Logistics Committee attended a meeting on the development of multimodal terminals, logistics centers and freight train stations in Ukraine with the participation of the management of the Ministry of Infrastructure, representatives of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Transport and Infrastructure, JSC “Ukrzaliznytsya”, experts of the World Bank.
Co-chairman of the Committee on Logistics Andriy Shklyar presented the concept of development of multimodal logistics centers, which was developed by World Bank experts with the support of specialists of the Center for Transport Strategies. The business community welcomes the support for activities to build a network of multimodal terminals and create a conducive environment for the development of multimodal transport, in particular, there is a need to create a network of multimodal logistics centers to consolidate freight. At the same time, the lack of a sufficient number of forwarding companies for the organization of complex logistics is also a problematic issue.
In addition, the meeting offered to consider the possibility of concession of low-load cargo stations, which will be handled separately by the business community.
