The European Business Association welcomes Ukrzaliznytsia’s decision to postpone the entry into force of the new freight contract on 1 June 2020. Such a term is sufficient to elaborate the provisions of the agreement by taking into account the interests of all parties, – experts of the EBA Logistics Committee believe.
We thank the management of Ukrzaliznytsia, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, the Ministry for Development of Economy, Trade and Agriculture, the Anti-Monopoly Committee of Ukraine for considering the situation in which the business is currently forced to work and extending the contract term.
Earlier, the Association had already published its remarks and comments on the new Agreement. We hope that during this time we will be able to work through together the comprehensive changes to the Agreement that will reflect not only the position and interests of the carrier but also those of service customers, and will satisfy all participants of the freight transportation market.
