Over the past year, the consolidated volume of processing of general, bulk and bulk cargoes increased to 286,000 tons
Mostyska Container Terminal (Mostyska Dry Port) handled more than 72.4 thousand TEU of containerized cargo in 2023. This is stated in the company’s press release.
Over the past year, the consolidated volume of general, bulk and liquid cargo handling increased to 286 thousand tons, in particular:
- grain – 122 thousand tons;
- bulk – 62 thousand tons;
- general – 35 thousand tons;
- bulk cargo – 37 thousand tons.
In addition, the terminal has a new cargo flow – electric vehicles. In 2023, the terminal received 36 containers and unloaded 108 vehicles.
«The availability of modern infrastructure and equipment, optimal utilization of production capacities and the professional approach of employees allowed us to successfully transship all the declared cargo through the terminal in 2023 and set personal records. We expect deeper integration and an increase in cargo traffic from the EU, as well as an increase in the level of containerization,» said the CEO of Mostyska Dry Port,» said the general director of Mostyska Dry Port Dmytro Kobzar.
The main growth in cargo traffic occurred in the second half of the year. Cargo was mainly shipped to Asia, via European ports, as well as to Poland, Italy and Germany. The reasons for the growth in transshipment volumes include the reorientation of shipping lines and the establishment of operations through Polish ports; development of production facilities; provision of new services; and a high level of service.
The company’s total investment over the past year is estimated at over UAH 100 million. The amount of taxes paid to all budgets of Ukraine reached UAH 27.66 million.
«Despite the war, we do not stop and continue to invest in the Ukrainian economy. In 2024, we plan to increase the terminal’s production capacity by expanding the operated areas for handling and storing containers, as well as actively develop container transportation between the terminal and EU countries as an alternative to road transportation,» summarized Dmytro Kobzar.
As GMK Center reported earlier, the U.S. Agency for International Development USAID plans to allocate $225 million for the construction of the Euro-gauge railway from Mostyska to Lviv. The construction of a 75 km long double-track railroad section will connect Lviv, which is planned to become one of the main railway hubs in western Ukraine, with the EU’s Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).
