The Ukrainian company Nibulon plans to build at least 10 river transshipment terminals for bulk cargoes along the Dnipro River, the Southern Buh River and other navigable rivers of Ukraine, the General director of the company, Oleksiy Vadaturskyy declared.
“We plan to build 10 facilities along the Dnipro River and along other rivers. This will fundamentally change the logistics map of Ukraine. Local authorities, who understand what the logistics improvement and removal of trucks from the highways is, support us”, said Vadaturskyy.
According to him, the new terminal with a capacity to transship up to 300 thousand tons of grains per year will remove almost 20’000 heavy-duty trucks from the highways of Kherson region. In addition, it is the closest point on the Dnipro River to transport cargo to the export terminal and to the Black Sea; this will take 8 hours only.
Also, the company plans to build 40 non-self-propelled vessels and tugs for its own fleet. (APK-Inform/Business World Magazine)
