Pilot project to move grain from Ukraine to Spain gets underway

A specially-adapted train comprising 25 40-foot containers filled with bags has got underway as part of a new pilot project to help Ukraine export its grain.

The effort, launched by Spain’s Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (Mitma), aims to mitigate problems suffered by sea transportation because of incidents at Ukraine’s sea ports in the Black Sea.

Spanish state-owned Renfe Mercancias sent the containers to the border between Poland and Ukraine to transport 600 tons of Ukrainian corn to Spain.
