River grain terminals in the Black Sea Region: Focusing on the future



Study of new sector of grain export logistics


UkrAgroConsult is pleased to announce for key decision makers the STUDY RIVER GRAIN TERMINALS IN THE BLACK SEA REGION: FOCUSING ON THE FUTURE.

The Study will provide you with up-to-dated analysis and forecasts on river ports development in the most important Black Sea countries (UKRAINE, RUSSIA, ROMANIA, BULGARIA, MOLDOVA) alongside by Dnieper, Dnestr, Volga, Don and Danube.

Rivers and land near the waterways are always the centers of cereal production and trading.

Recent changes in crop production structure as well as in the logistics chain ‘from the field to the seaport’ led to a new trend in grain generating for exports by rivers – by ‘river/sea’ type of vessels.

Global warming makes the grain traders to find alternative transport modes to reduce their marketing costs. Alongside food deficit countries seek to reduce the end-consumers’ prices for wheat and other grains.

These factors allow UkrAgroConsult predicting an increasing share of grain transportation via rivers while deliveries by railway and trucks would be stable or even tend to decline.

The multi-client approach enables clients to obtain the results of ambitious research projects at a fraction of the overall costs involved in undertaking such studies.
