Danube ports this year increased cargo transshipment to 120 thousand tons per day.

Deputy Minister of Development of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure of Ukraine Yuriy Vaskov spoke about this, Ukrinform reports with reference to the press service of the Ministry of Reconstruction on Facebook.

He noted that this was a record figure achieved thanks to the development of port infrastructure and the reorientation of exports through the Danube ports.

“We focused on the sea ports of the Danube cluster. Before the war, exports through this direction accounted for 1.5% of the total volume, while at the same time, thanks to the development of ports on the Danube, this figure increased to 30%,” Vaskov said.

The Deputy Minister added that, despite the functioning of the temporary Ukrainian maritime corridor, the development of the ports of the Danube cluster remains one of the priorities of the Ministry of Reconstruction for 2024.

Vaskov noted that the temporary sea corridor continues to work systematically. Since August, about 250 ships have already used it, transporting more than 10 million tons of cargo, of which 6 million tons are agricultural products.

According to him, the growth rate of exports through the Ukrainian corridor has already significantly exaggerated the growth rate of exports within the framework of the “grain initiative.”

As reported, Ukrainian ports on the Danube have increased cargo handling by 2.2 times.
