Moving a bumper harvest to the sea ports will not be a problem

, says Gorbachov. Ukraine now has 28,000 rail hopper cars, almost triple the 10,000 of three years ago. “We have no more deficit of these hoppers, and we can move grain easily to the ports,” he said. “Now we can load without any problem 70 to 80 million tons of grain per year.” Transport modes to the ports are: rail – 65%; road – 25%; and river – 10%.
