Epicenter K considers the purchase of 300 grain hopper cars and a port terminal
In 2019, the agricultural division of Epicenter K plans to purchase 300 grain hopper cars. Moreover, the company considers the acquisition of a port terminal, AgroTimes informs.
Svetlana Nikityuk, the Head of the Trading Department of the company Epicenter Agro, says that this year the company will operate four route elevators — Vinnytsia, Zakupnyansky, Vapnyarsky and Vendichansky.
"Now we are taking our time to negotiate with producers about their purchases," comments Svetlana Nikityuk.
She adds that for the complete vertical integration of the company its own port terminal is of great importance.
"This would allow not to stand in queues in ports and get an additional cost of grain," the Head of the Trading Department stresses.
Previously it was reported that Epicenter K planned to construct an elevator in the Lysianka village of Cherkasy region.
