RCG connects Ukraine to intermodal network

Direct intermodal connection between Ukraine and the extensive ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) TransNET. Benefits for the economy, nations and the environment. Scheduled timetable and attractive transit times with weekly departures in both directions.

In cooperation with Ukrainian Railways, RCG is connecting Ukraine to its intermodal network (TransNET) with the new TransFER Vienna–Kyiv line. As the leading rail logistics specialist in Europe, RCG already offers a wide range of TransFER connections throughout the Eurasian continent. The new connection between Kiev and Vienna, which stops in Budapest and Lviv, is ÖBB's freight subsidiary's first regular, high-frequency intermodal connection between Ukraine and the many hubs in Central Europe.

Standard gauge traction is provided in Europe by the RCG from the Ukrainian border onwards – all from a single source. RCG will also be handling additional logistical services such as terminal services, import and export customs and much more. Our partner Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways) will take over on the broad gauge all the way to the Ukrainian/Hungarian border.  

Supporting Ukraine – keeping the economic wheels turning

The Rail Cargo Group has been intensively supporting Ukraine with transport and logistics services since March 2022. More than two million tonnes of agricultural products alone were exported – with more than 100 trains per month, exceeding any other freight transport company in Europe.
