Metinvest-Shipping, Metinvest Group’s logistics provider, won two nominations of the 12th National Marine Rating of Ukraine in 2018. The rating showcased winners in 18 nominations representing various segments of the maritime industry of Ukraine.

Metinvest-Shipping won the Best Freight Forwarder nomination for a record number of cargoes handled in the country’s seaports and terminals – about 25.37 million tonnes, which exceeded the total transshipments made by other top five participants.

The company ranked first in the Marine Agent nomination for the biggest number of self-propelled vessels serviced in the Ukrainian seaports. In 2018, the company handled 761 vessels.

Metinvest-Shipping is the general freight forwarder of Metinvest Group, the biggest Ukrainian consignor. Last year, the Group’s cargoes accounted for about 22% of all shipments by rail (Ukrzaliznytsia's rail network) and about 19% of transshipments in the Ukrainian seaports.
