According to the operational data of the USPA, in the first four months of 2019, the seaports of Ukraine handled 48.8 million tons of cargo, which is 5 million tons (or 12%) higher than last year. During the reporting period, exports grew by 20% compared with the same period last year, while imports and transit declined by 5% and 18.5%, respectively.

Among the seaports, the leaders are four ports, which provided more than 87% of the total transshipment volume in the last four months. The port “Yuzhny” transshipped a little less than 15.5 million tons (+ 19.6%) compared with the first four months of last year, the Nikolaev port – almost 10.7 million tons (+ 20.3%), the port of Chernomorsk – 8, 4 million tons (+ 20.9%), and the Odessa MTP, more than 8 million tons (+ 5.5%).

More than a third of the total volume is the transshipment of grain cargoes, which has grown by almost a third (+ 4.4 million tons) compared with January-April 2018. More than a quarter – more than 10.5 million tons – increased handling of ore. The increase in the processing of chemical and mineral fertilizers (by a quarter by bulk, by more than five times) was quite significant – by 385 thousand tons. The growth trend in container handling continues: +47.8 thousand TEU (+ 18.6%) in the first four months of 2019 compared with the same period last year.
