During recent harvests, the demand for shipments of Ukrainian grain crops to countries in Europe, the CIS and Asia has significantly increased. Shipping grain requires attention to several important issues to be addressed both before and during the shipment, such as whether specialized modes of transport are required, the preservation of the goods’ integrity, and the preparation of relevant certificates.
Over last years, AsstrA has established itself as a reliable partner providing comprehensive grain transport services via a variety of transport modes. AsstrA specialists offer both domestic Ukrainian grain shipments as well as exports to the EU and CIS countries.
Characteristics of grain transportation
When transporting grain, close attention to detail is required.AsstrA specialists ensure the safe and professional handling of grain cargo and utilize a specialized fleet that reduces external risks and preserves cargo quality. In addition to transport according to customer volume and capacity requirements, we offer support to optimize delivery schemes. For grain transport by rail, the forwarder acts as the shipper and takes full responsibility for the safety and handling of the cargo during transit.
Because transport is a major component of the final cost of cargo, a forwarding company plays a key role in successfully completing transactions. Thanks to long experience and a deep understanding of our markets, AsstrA offers its clients attractive prices and terms that make us the preferred partner of both agricultural conglomerates and medium-sized producers.
Another important aspect to consider is legislation. Ukrainian state authorities set specific requirements regarding grain transportation certificates. AsstrA specialists provide comprehensive support in preparation of any certificates required along with transport and customs documentation.
