You know, we have been working in Ukraine since 2001 and are still looking for a port that would be reliable and perform its functions (laughs). In addition to problems with harbors, it is still necessary to remember the lack of train cars and containers within the country.
If grain is produced in different regions, it must be delivered to the port, and this is where problems arise, one of which is the lack of grain carriers. In the Ukrainian economic realities, businesses need to fight for them.
If we talk about the railway, transportation of small lots does not cause difficulties. But when there are lots of 100-300 thousand tons, everything is much more complicated. Logistics should be more open to the competitive environment.
Perhaps these are basic things, but we pay our agricultural producers based on the world prices, not Ukrainian ones. When logistics costs increase, the price paid to the farmers reduces. The lower is the cost of shipping, the more you can pay the producers. This is absolutely logical, and we talk a lot about this in France, since the scheme is the same as in Ukraine.
