PKP Cargo Connect (part of the PKP Cargo group) will be responsible for the transport of goods to Poland through the border crossing at Medyka and on to Western Europe. The company will cooperate with the Ukrainian CFTS Liski (a branch of Ukrzaliznytsia JSC).

The terminal in Medyk has a warehouse with an area of 4.5 thousand square meters. Access roads with a track gauge of 1520 mm are located here. The terminal specializes in the transshipment of metal products, retail consignments and ceramic products, and also provides additional services for customs clearance.

“Medyka should become an important center of trade between the European Union countries, Ukraine, Turkey and other Asian countries,” says PKP Cargo President Czeslaw Varsevich.

PKP Cargo Connect is currently in talks with potential customers from China.
