Ukraine's AgroProsperis ships first wheat batch via Danube port

MOSCOW. June 6 (Interfax) - The AgroProsperis agribusiness group has shipped 3,000 tonnes of wheat to Turkey through the Izmail river port in the Odesa region; this is the first delivery made since February 24.

"The company is continuing to develop a new area of river logistics along the Danube River and is eyeing a number of truck and rail routes to the western border of the country," Ukrainian media outlets quoted the agribusiness holding as saying on social media on Monday.

According to AgroProsperis, it started to develop the full cycle of agricultural produce logistics from the field to the client in 2015. In February-May, the group developed a number of export solutions combining truck and rail transportation, storage of grain in ports in big bags or in soft "sleeves," and further development of exports through Danube ports.

As of May 2022, it was able to export about 40,000 tonnes of agricultural products per month through five Danube ports.

Before February 24, AgroProsperis cultivated 430,000 hectares of land and had capacities for storing 800,000 tonnes of agricultural crops. The holding was growing and exporting over 2 million tonnes of grain and oilseed crops per annum.
