Lemtrans will build a railway terminal on the border with Poland

The Ukrainian company Lemtrans has acquired a 70% stake in Mostiska Dry Port LLC and intends to create a railway logistics hub on its basis. The universal terminal project will be implemented on the territory of a former oil depot near the railway station Mostiska-2 (Lviv region), a few kilometers from the border of Ukraine and Poland. Its container capacity is 100 thousand TEU. The total investment will amount to more than $ 15 million, reports Railway Supply magazine with reference to the press release of Lemtrans.

Upon completion of the construction, carriers and shippers will be able to quickly transfer containers from 1520 mm gauge rail cars to 1435 mm gauge and vice versa. Here, in particular, they plan to receive goods in traffic between the EU and China.

As a result of the project implementation, it is planned to create more than 50 jobs.
