July 2020 was marked by two records for Nibulon, Ukrainian agricultural company specializing in production and export of grains. Almost 453 thousand tons of cargo were transported by rivers and 387 thousand tons of grain were shipped for export at the external raid of the Mykolayiv seaport without ships in Mykolayiv. These indicators are the highest for the entire period of the company's activity in terms of months.
Thus, thanks to the work of the company's fleet, about 19,000 trucks did not leave for Ukrainian highways in just one month. Exactly this amount of grain transported by rivers did not reach Kremenchuk, Dnipro, Zaporizhia, Kherson, Mykolayiv and other settlements of the country.
In the first month of the new marketing year, Nibulon transported 452,935 tons of cargo by inland waterways. The previous maximum was 419,853 tons in May 2019.
“We have the largest achievement in the shipment of grain for export - 387,267 tons. This figure has not exceeded 338,344 tons since October 2019. During July, Nibulon exported the most wheat, barley and corn.” the company said.
The shipping company emphasizes that the achievement of record marks in the work of the fleet is the result of constant systemic development of the enterprise. It is the implementation of Nibulon's comprehensive investment program for the revival of Ukrainian rivers as transport arteries with each passing year that allows them to set new records. Thus, in the 2019/20 marketing year, despite the corona crisis and other obstacles, a record 3.8 million tons of various cargoes were transported by inland waterways . 4.9 million tons of grain and oilseeds were shipped for export , which makes the last three marketing years the best in the company's history. Next year it is planned to transport 4.5-5 million tons of cargo for export to 6 million tons of grain.
