According to German Transport Minister Volker Wissing, Deutsche Bahn has started transporting grain by railway to support grain exports from Ukraine.

In particular, DB Cargo, which unites all national and international activities of Deutsche Bahn in the sphere of railway cargo transportation, is in the process of creating a railway bridge which will make it possible to transport a large number of agricultural products to the ports of the Black Sea and the Adriatic. 

DB Cargo already operates on behalf of private grain exporters of Ukraine. The head of the railway, Richard Lutz, mentioned two or three operations per day from Ukraine via Poland and the corresponding terminals to Western Europe.

The export of grain through the seaports of Ukraine has stopped due to the war in Russia. It jeopardizes shipments to Central Africa and Asia, in particular.

Last Tuesday, the European Commission approved an action plan to help Ukraine export agro-industrial products, the so-called Solidarity Lanes. You can read about it here.
