According to the new edition of the agreement on provision of services on the organization of rail transportation, UZ reduces the fee for the use of napavine from 902 to 800 UAH/day (without VAT) and grain – from 1136 to 800 UAH/day.
the Rate for the use of the grain will change in three stages:

whereas for other types of cars, rates will remain unchanged.
the Ukrainian grain Association is in favour of unification of tariffs empty run of wagons in the first stage (And grade +52%, class II 0% class III -38%), which will allow you to compile the cost of empty mileage for all goods. Now the fares between the transport of goods of different classes may vary 2.72 times, and rates on return of empty cars – 2.5 times.
While at UGA are strongly against the planned second stage increase in the cost of empty mileage that the unification of tariffs will rise by 41% and will result in additional costs to farmers in the amount of 0.7 $ per tonne of grain that will be 650-700 million per year. UGA appealed to the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of economy and Railways with a request shaswati the second phase of changes in the draft order "On amendments in ...of tariffs for rail transportation in Ukraine".
