The Group’s cargo fleet consists of 10 river-sea, dry cargo vessels of total 29,673 DWT, which due to their shallow draft can access major river and sea ports in Black and Azov Sea regions. The Group also provides passenger river transport services in the Kiev and other regions of Ukraine (operating the fleet of 8 passenger river vessels), as well as ship repair services at its own shipyard located in the city of Kherson.
According to International Economic Rating “League of the Bests” in 2012, the Group is ranked as # 1 in river activity and 3rd in maritime activity in Ukraine.
The Group has developed a vertically integrated business model. The Group’s main activity of dry-bulk shipping is supported by its own ship repair yard, its own ship agency in selected ports as well as its own crewing department. Such business model allows the Group to benefit from certain cost efficiencies and sustain competitive advantages.
