Since the start of Russia's military invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the Rail Cargo Group has been tirelessly supporting Ukraine with its logistics and transportation services. Specifically, from March to May 2022, the company transported over 130,000 pieces of Ukrainian grain to several European countries. These shipments will increase in summer, primarily due to the blockade of Ukrainian seaports by the occupation forces.

According to Rail Cargo Group news releases, shipments to Austria will gradually double to about 2,600 tons in July 2022. Shipments to Hungary will increase by 66% and amount to 6,500-9,100 tons over the same period. Shipments to Germany will remain unchanged at around 36,000 tons per month.

Currently, Rail Cargo Hungaria is responsible for about 75 per cent of the grain shipments from Ukraine to Hungary, which equates to 10-15 trains a week, each with 1,300 - 1,600 tons of grain. In addition to Hungary, the company transports grain to Germany, Austria, Italy and Slovakia.

In addition, Rail Cargo Group carries out railway transportation from Reni (Ukraine) to the Romanian port of Constanta. Until May 2022, the volume of such shipments amounted to more than 33,500 tons of grain. According to the company's news release, due to a lack of diesel fuel supplies, the company had to switch to using barges starting in May 2022. Currently, four barges operate on behalf of RCG from Reni to Constanta via the waterway. About 20,000 tons of grain can be transported per month.

Activities related to transportation of Ukrainian grain and counteracting the growth of food prices in the world Rail Cargo Group carries out in the framework of the European Commission's Solidarity Lanes Action Plan.
