Ukraine’s geographic location makes it an important trade and travel corridor between Europe, Asia and the Middle East. When combined with its other comparative advantages, Ukraine has the potential to become a potent Eurasian Hub.
With over 170,000 km of roadways, 22,000 km of rail lines and 13 seaports, Ukraine has the infrastructure to quickly move goods – from grain to auto parts – within the country or beyond its borders.
Most major destinations in Europe can be reached in two days by truck from Ukraine, which gives it a competitive edge, particularly for manufacturing and food distribution.
By comparison, the average shipping time by sea from China is 25 days to Western Europe, and 30 days to Northern Europe. When the truck time to ship across Europe is added for non-port cities, Ukraine stands out for its capability of delivering goods in a timely and cost-effective manner.
