Join the International Baltic Transport Forum taking place in Kaliningrad, Russia on the 11th & 12th September 2019.

Saulius Stasyunas, Director of the Business Development Department of LG CARGO (Lithuanian Railways), confirms the trend: “When we have long-term agreements, it is easier to plan our development,” and adds: “The Baltic Transport Forum for LG CARGO AS is the meetings with our customers: with shippers, consignees, sea lines and railway administrations. Forum is a good platform for discussing the development trend of the region, transporting goods, presenting their services, searching for new customers. An equally important area for us is to increase the level of customer service: more than two-thirds of our traffic is international. To cooperate with our neighbours and other railway administrations, freight forwarders, terminals, sea lines it is essential for us. The third area of development is the modernisation of the company. I mean electrification, the acquisition of new rolling stock, and much more. ”

 

Recall that for the first half of 2019, LG CARGO transported a cargo volume similar to last year's figures (about 27 mln tons). Export, import, domestic transportation increased, which, however, cannot be said about transit. The main cargoes remain fertiliser, oil and oil products, ferrous metals, coal, wood and wood products, food products. By 2030, the company plans to increase annual freight turnover by 30 per cent - up to 70 mln tons.
