The company plans to continue using inland waterway shipping.
KIEV, UKRAINE — Nibulon recently began utilizing the Dnipro River and Southern Buh River in Ukraine for cargo transport. Since the beginning of 2016 Nibulon has made 150 trips along the Southern Buh River transporting 300,000 tons of grains and oilseeds. The company broke the previous record of 50,000 tons of cargo shipped via the Southern Buh River.

The given volume of agricultural commodities was shipped from Nibulon’s transshipment terminals located in Nova Odesa and Voznesensk districts (Mykolaiv region). Even though the company’s newly built branch in Voznesensk district has started shipping grain recently, it already has shipped more than 100,000 tons of agricultural commodities.

According to Nibulon, more than 11,000 trucks were removed from the road to Mykolaiv due to Nibulon’s river transport activity.

The company plans to transport up to 2 million tons of cargo per year along the Southern Buh River. Half of the proposed cargo shipment is slotted to be 1 million tons of grain cargo.  

Transportation of 1 million tons of grain along the Southern Buh River will reduce the number of trucks on the highways by more than 42,000, Nibulon said.
