In January-April 2020, the seaports of Ukraine handled more than 55 million tonnes of cargo, which is 12.6% more compared to the same period in 2019.

According to the statement of the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority on the state-owned enterprise’s website, traditionally, the leaders in transshipment are grain and ore.

Over the indicated period 18.7 million tonnes (5% more) of grain and 13.8 million tonnes of ore (30.5% more) were handled.

Handling of coal doubled to 2.5 million tonnes and that of crude oil increased by five times to 800,000 tonnes. Transshipment of containers by Ukrainian ports amounted to 357,700 TEU (up by 17.2%).

According to the Sea Ports Authority, handling of exported cargo increased due to a rise in transshipment of grain to 18.2 million tonnes (by 5.3%), iron ore to 10.9 million tonnes (by 45.4%), oil to 2.2 million tonnes (by 8.8%).

Transshipment of imported cargoes increased due to a rise in handling coal to 2.3 million tonnes (by 106.9%) and crude oil to 500,000 tonnes (by 213.6%), and oil products to 400,000 tonnes (by 233.3%).

Transit transportations increase due to a rise in handling ore to 1.1 million tonnes (by 34%) and crude oil to 400,000 tonnes.

Four seaports led in terms of cargo handling: Pivdenny, Mykolaiv, Chornomorsk and Odesa. In general, they processed 47.7 million tonnes of cargoes, which is 87% of the total volume of cargo handling by Ukrainian seaports.
