The agricultural sector is a vital part of the Ukrainian economy, with grain production being one of its key drivers. However, the transportation of grain from the fields to the Ukrainian ports and Western European countries ports for export remains a major challenge due to limited infrastructure on western borders and war in Ukraine. As a result, there is a need for innovative and efficient transportation solutions that can ensure timely and cost-effective delivery of grain to its destination. The aim of the project is to establish a company that will offer grain transportation by railway in specialized containers. The proposed transportation solution is expected to address some of the current challenges in the industry by providing a reliable, efficient, and eco-friendly way to transport grain from the fields to the ports. The specialized containers are designed to protect the grain from damage, ensure that it arrives at its destination in optimal condition and simplify borders crossings.
