Transport & logistic infrastructure

Transport & logistic infrastructure

In the realities of a full-scale war, air and water transportation was temporarily suspended, so the railway and road transport today remain the main logistics links in the region. The railway connects the industrial centers of the region and helps businesses to carry out export and import operations with neighboring states. Passenger, humanitarian and military aid transportation are working stably, and international evacuation routes run daily for those wishing to travel out the country.

Road transport connection

The territory of Dnipropetrovsk region is crossed by two European routes connecting the region with seaports, the capital and industrial centers. The largest transport hub in the region is the city of Dnipro. The network of highways connects it with all cities and urban-type settlements throughout Ukraine.

The existing European roads allow the enterprises of the region to continue their foreign economic activity. Active restoration of infrastructure damaged as a result of hostilities continues, as well as the construction of new highways.

Highway transportation ports

There are 6 highway transportation ports in the territory of the region, which provide customs clearance, storage and transshipment of goods.

Railway transportation service

The railway transportation is the main mode of Dnipropetrovsk region transport. By saturation with railways, the region is the leader in the state, the network of railway tracks is 1 023.7 km. The operator of the railway transportation service in Dnipropetrovsk region is the regional branch «Prydniprovska Railway» owned by the PJSC «Ukrainian Railways». 

Railway hubs

River transport

From north to south, Dnipropetrovsk region is crossed by the main water artery of the country – the Dnipro River. There are 6 river ports in the region, which are served by rail and road transport.

The Container line «Tavria Line» is the first Ukrainian line that delivers cargo in sea containers to the central region of Ukraine – Dnipropetrovsk region, using its own vessels. Tavria Line operates in the direction of Constanta (Romania) – Dnipro.

The vessels of the «river-sea» type provide direct international cargo transportation with access to the Black, Marmara and Mediterranean seas. Moreover, a promising trend is actively developing – it is a cabotage transportation of containers between the ports of the Black Sea and river ports of the Dnipro river. The region has the largest river ports in Ukraine, which fully meets the needs of adjacent industrial regions in the transportation, storage of various cargoes: metal, grain, coal, raw materials for building materials, containers, etc.

Currently, due to security reasons, water transportation is temporarily suspended.

Air transport

It is planned to reconstruct the airport complex to expand the geography of flights and attract leading international airlines to the region.

The international airport «Kryvyi Rih» (KWG) is «B» class.

Air service is temporarily suspended for security reasons. 

Pipeline transportation

In the territory of Dnipropetrovsk region there are main pipelines and compressor complexes for the transportation of ammonia, natural gas and oil, which are used by the enterprises of the region. This transport pipeline network makes it possible to provide the necessary raw materials for an enterprise producing fertilizers, chemical products, liquefied gas, as well as refined products, the import of which occupies a significant share of the Ukrainian market.


The telecommunication infrastructure is successfully developing in the region. There is a creation of fiber-optic and wireless data transmission channels, providing high-quality telecommunications services to all consumers in the region. The area is provided with mobile communication in GSM and CDMA. Most of the territories are covered by high-speed wireless Internet using 3G/4G technology.

Also, Dnipropetrovsk region received access to Starlink high-speed satellite Internet. This global satellite system allows you to stay connected where there are no alternatives – where the fixed and mobile Internet does not work because of damage, including military operations or power outages.
