Yuzhny port's cargo volume hits 14.2m tonnes

Cargo throughput at the terminals of Ukraine’s state-owned Yuzhny Port has hit the mark of 14,200,275.2 tonnes, as of December 10 2013, the port operator said.

More than 70% of total throughput account for SCM Group's cargoes.

A 1m tonne decline in transit loads in the reporting period did not affect the cargo volume that kept unchanged thanks to coal and ore exports. The SCM Group remains a primary cargo owner and customer for Yuzhny port with 54% of total throughput.

Port Yuzhny is located on the northwest coast of the Black Sea, in the ice-free Small Adzhalyksk (Grygoryivsky) estuary, 30 km northeast of Odessa. The port is connected to the sea by a 3km-long, 14m-deep access channel. The port’s operator is state-owned Yuzhny Merchant Sea Port. In 2012, the company handled 22.72 million tonnes of different cargo.
