Twelve new terminals are being built along the Ukrainian coast of the Danube River to help increase the capacity of ports.

Deputy Minister of Community Development, Territories, and Infrastructure Yurii Vaskov announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Latifundist publication.

He said that a simplified law on the construction of new terminals was adopted last year. According to him, local authorities are ready to offer land for construction.

According to him, many market participants are currently creating logistics infrastructure on the Danube River because of insufficient capacity for storage and export of grain. In particular, the Nibulon agricultural company is building a new terminal in Izmail while the Kernel Agro Holding company has acquired the Danube Prom Agro river terminal in the port of Reni. The Ukrainian Danube Shipping Company (UDP), the Asket Shipping company, and the Danube Logistics Group are also developing infrastructure on the Danube River.
