The mankind development is associated with global challenges at the present stage. The growing shortage of food is one of the most acute problems that poses additional challenges of society. The priority is not the timely delivery of food, it is the cultivation and production of sufficient food.
For this reason, there is a stable annual growth in the world market of mineral fertilizers: production and sales are increasing, sales markets are expanding. Experts predict that the production of sulfur will increase by 4% annually, and the world's volume of procurement will reach 72 million tons by 2020.
International provider of transport and logistics services AsstrA does not remain on the sidelines. At the beginning of this year, the company formed a profile Department AsstrA Fertilizers Logistics, which offers a full range of transport and logistics services related to the transportation of fertilizers, including the transportation of sulfur, urea and other agrochemicals. In an ever-growing market, AsstrA helps leading producers and traders cope with heavy traffic and ensures safe and efficient transportation of fertilizers.
The most popular service of AsstrA Fertilizers Logistics Department is sulfur transshipment in the ports of the Black and Caspian seas.
