HHLA Container Terminal Odessa (CTO) announced to establish a new subsidiary, Ukrainian Intermodal Company, to provide railway transportation for containers across Ukraine.


CTO is a member of the German logistics leader HHLA Group, based in Hamburg and operates the largest container terminal in the port of Odessa. The Company has been profiting from the Black Sea’s increasing global container traffic in the past years.

The HHLA’s container terminal is consolidating its leading position through new berths for mega-ships and a modular expansion concept. It is already fit for the largest ships currently navigating the Black Sea, with up to 10,000 standard containers (TEU). The multi-purpose facility is handling project cargo and grain too.
