Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine, Vladyslav Krykliy, said on his Facebook page that the two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding. According to the minister, in the near future the German and Ukrainian carriers will have to agree on an action plan to determine and implement measures aimed at the improvement of services quality within the parties’ obligations, carry out regular monitoring, as well as eliminate problems.

The companies will also determine measures for improvement of the working capacity of the Odessa Port rail station and the railway infrastructure with the aim of increasing cargo turnover in the port, take measures to improve effectiveness of commercialization of intermodal trains and agree on tariffs in line with international practices.

In the long-term perspective they will have to decide on demand for rolling stock to provide intermodal transport services, reasonability of the use of light multisystem locomotives and determine the main requirements for location, financing and operation of terminals based on their growth.
