The main cargo transported by LTG Cargo during the year was oil and oil products (9.4 million tonnes), which was similar to the previous year. Construction materials were actively transported at around 5.5 million tonnes, while the volume of agricultural products transported increased (4.7 million tonnes). In 2023, LTG Cargo transported about one third more of these products than in 2022.
"After the turbulence of the last few years in the sector, freight flows have stabilised. And we have continued our actions to strengthen the intermodal freight trend: the development of the international route to Duisburg, the introduction of a new destination to Slavkov and the increase of our transport volumes in Poland," says Eglė Šimė, CEO of LTG Cargo.
In 2023, the company significantly increased its local transport volumes to around 7.7 million tonnes. LTG Cargo transported 20% more cargo than in 2022. Freight transport to and from Klaipėda Seaport amounted to 9.1 million tonnes. Taking into account all cargo transported to and from Kaliningrad through the territory of Lithuania, regardless of its origin and destination, the volume of cargo transported through Kaliningrad is 20% lower than in 2022 - about 6.5 million tonnes; another 3.9 million tonnes were transported in other directions.
Last year, LTG Cargo transported almost 36,000 tonnes of cargo from Ukraine via Poland to Klaipeda seaport, while another 251,000 tonnes of cargo were transported to Ukraine via Poland - mainly oil and oil products (233,000 tonnes).
By the end of December, a total of 11,018 TEUs were transported via the intermodal route to Duisburg in Germany, which has become the backbone of international freight transport. 2,770 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) were transported on the Kaunas-Slavkov route, which was launched last year.
