It is noted that the growth in volumes of cargo turnover was facilitated by the increase in the transshipment of grain crops and clay, as well as the expansion of the nomenclature of leguminous crops, in particular, pea transshipment.
"Due to the re-profiling of warehouses for storage of agricultural products that were previously used for the storage of fertilizers, we managed to significantly increase the volumes of grains and legumes transshipment. As a result, the port Nika-Tera became the leader among Ukrainian port operators for transshipment of peas with a share of 43%," commented the head of the port Nika-Tera Alim Agakishiev.
