Poland plans to create a grain terminal for transporting goods from Ukraine to Africa, Asia
Poland is trying to resolve logistics issues to help Ukraine transport grain to seaports in Africa and Asia
Ukrinform reported the news citing Poland's Deputy Prime Minister and Agriculture Minister Henryk Kowalczyk.
The Interdepartmental Group on Transportation of Agricultural and Food Products from Ukraine discussed options for transporting goods at border crossings, railway transport and seaports, at a recent meeting. Improvements need to be made to how border crossing points operate, and then there is a possible need to build temporary warehouses on the border with Ukraine.
"It is also important to improve the possibilities of railway traffic for the 15 trains based on wagon carts that the Ukrainians have, so that grain can be transported directly in Ukrainian wagons to the port in Gdańsk," stressed Henryk Kowalczyk.
The Deputy Prime Minister believes that grain trucks would also run to the Gdańsk port.
The meeting discussed the possibility of creating a grain terminal with an area of about 100,000 tons. This would help to export both Ukrainian and Polish grain on a large scale.
"Cereals are a critically important product for countering the prospect of famine in Africa and the Arab countries. We are obliged to help Ukraine with exports. To do this, we must consider various solutions and look for new opportunities," said the Deputy Prime Minister.
