Ukraine, the largest port authority of this region, has great plans for the future. For instance, in June 2017, The Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA) announced plans to allocate UAH 3.9 billion (124,820,373.12 EUR) to finance infrastructure projects in the maritime sector during 2017. [i]Also, the structure of Ukraine’s exports has traditionally shown an increase in transhipment of agro-sector products. This is grain — 19.6 million tons (+ 20%) and vegetable oils — 2.9 million tons (+ 33.8). These figures demonstrate the diverse requirements of the market, for which BeFlexi is a natural solution.[ii]
