Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways) continues preferring Russian transit cargo to local transportation, the letter of the Poltava Mining and Processing Works commercial director Dmitry Spatar to the minister of infrastructure Vladislav Krikliy says.
“Despite the promise to decrease the volume of transit cargo from 240 thousand tons to 40 thousand tons, an increase of transit cargo transportation via the Port Yuzhniy is reported”, Spatar notes.
On November 13 the company ordered the delivery of 200 thousand tons of pellets to the port in December. So far only 7.65 thousand tons have been transported. (Ukrainian metal)
