Preparing for the coming marketing year: successful tender for Top-off (STS) loading

In order to prepare for the new marketing year, PJSC “MMW” Grain Terminal successfully held a tender for the purchase of services for Top-off loading of grain cargo in the outer roadstead of the Mykolaiv seaport.

Loading by top-off system will enable to provide to customers a full range of services for transshipment of grain cargo for large-capacity Panamax vessels with high productivity.

For the coming marketing year, we plan to handle at least 40 vessels of the above type.

Recall that according to the forecasts of scientists from the Institute of Agrarian Economics, the gross harvest of grain and leguminous crops in 2021 will amount to a record 70.7 million tons, which is 8.8% more than in 2020 (65 million tons) therefore, with the growth of transshipment volumes, the need for additional loading in the roadstead will only increase.

In turn, MMW Grain Terminal improves logistics as a goal to achieve a high level of providing customer services.
