With the Kremlin blocking most rail cargo shipments between Ukraine and Central Asia

With the Kremlin blocking most rail cargo shipments between Ukraine and Central Asia, the Poti alternative is gaining popularity. During the first quarter of this year, the port handled 115,000 containers, up 40% q-o-q, and 2.1 million tons of cargo, up 31% q-o-q. Year round, UkrFerry runs two cargo and passenger ferries between Poti and Ukraine’s Chornomorsk. Ferries also go from Poti to Constanta, Romania and Varna, Bulgaria.
