Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Mykola Solskyi, accompanied by the Ambassador of Ukraine to Lithuania Petro Beshta, visited Klaipeda Stevedoring Company Bega. The guests were introduced to Bega's facilities to handle agricultural products and other bulk and liquid cargo.
Ukraine, suffering from the war caused by Russia, is looking for alternative ways to export the grain.
"We plan to export about 50-60 million tons of grain this year. On the Lithuanian side, we see understanding and the ability to work with large quantities, but it is important to resolve the issue of cargo transportation”, - Minister M. Solskyi said during a visit to the Klaipėda State Seaport Authority a little earlier.
Bega operates one of the largest and most modern agricultural product handling terminals in the Baltic region. The complex consists of 30 storages of various types - silos and flat warehouses - with a total capacity of 450 thousand cub. m. The annual handling capacity of the terminal is over 4 million t. In addition, this complex can act as a regional distribution center for bulk agricultural production.
Bega has also developed liquid cargo handling capacities, including tanks and handling technologies for the collection, storage and transshipment of various edible and technical oils.
