Odessa, Ukraine (PortSEurope) November 24, 2018 – In the last five years, the volume of grain exports through Ukraine’s seaports has almost doubled from 22.1 to 43.9 million tons.
According to Maxim Shirokov of the Yuzhny division of Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA) said at the “Grain Terminals: New Projects, Equipment and Technologies” event in Odessa, that the increase was mainly due to investment in new grain terminals in the ports of Yuzhny, Berdyansk and Olbia.
