From September 4, restrictions began to apply to Ingulets, Central and Northern minings

Starting from September 4, 2022, Ukrzaliznytsia (UZ) introduced three conventions, which prohibited the transportation of goods for the Kryvyi Rih mining and beneficiation plants of the Metinvest group. The railway operator website’s data informs about it.

The UZ limited the transportation of railcars bound for the Ingulets, Terny, Ryadova and Grekuvata railway stations for the Ingulets, Northern and Central mining and beneficiation plants.

The conventions apply to departures from stations in Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Poland, Romania and other countries.

Earlier, Ukrzaliznytsia began to receive massive claims from shippers due to delays in the delivery of goods. In August alone, 500 claims were received from Metinvest.

As GMK Center reported earlier, at the beginning of August, UZ introduced a convention for the transportation of sinter ore to Slovakia.

As of mid-August 2022, almost 29,000 railcars are standing in the direction of border crossings. The number of railcars standing in line in the border crossings, despite the stable monthly dynamics of reduction, did not change.

Also, according to the results of August 2022, Ukrzaliznytsia reduced the transportation of iron and manganese ore by 6.8% compared to the previous month – to 1.89 million tons. In general, UZ increased cargo transportation by 4.5% compared to the previous month – up to 10.79 million tons.
