Ukraine. New warehouses can be constructed with river transport handling for USD 250 mln


Investment potential of the new storing capacities with possibility of water transport handling is estimated at USD 250 mln. Such opinion has the Director of Hermes-Trading,  Yuri Skichko.

According to him, total handling capacities may reach 5-7 MMT by 2019/2020, reports UkrAgroConsult. Additional storing facilities  for river logistics can reach 2.8 MMT, including the new ones – about 1 MMT. Among them can be grain terminals as well as static and moveable point of transshipment. Grain can be supplied for handling either from lineal silos or from farmers` fields or farmers` silos.

Development of domestic water ways of Ukraine is vital, as this is effective continuation of E40 project development which connects Baltic Sea with Black Sea through Visla - Pripyat – Dnieper with “New Silk Road”. This will be a perfect alternative for shipment of commodities in bulk and in containers/cisterns. In such a way it will be possible to create the route to ship commodities from China to Europe.
