Grain delivery to Pivdennyi port by railway may become a problem

In 2020, Ukrzaliznytsia plans additional transportation of around 10 MMT of ore by railway to Pivdennyi seaport, which may complicate the logistics of grain cargoes in this direction significantly.

Large grain handling facilities at the terminals Borivage, TIS and M.V. Cargo are located at Pivdennyi port, while port railway stations do not always cope with the flow of rail cars even now.
