Development of the system of river transportation of grains in Ukraine will significantly reduce the cost of commodity transportation to the seaports of Ukraine, declared Yuri Skichko, Director of the company Hermes-Trading, on October 24 during his speech at the IV Ukrainian Grain Congress in Kiev.
In terms of good development of the river fleet of Ukraine, the cost of grain transportation from the oblasts having access to the river arteries will total nearly 12 USD/t, which is almost half the price compared with the rates of commodity transportation by other types of transport, he said.
