Primeore further diversify manganese ore logistic solutions

Katowice, Poland – August 29, 2022


The unfair, unjustifiable and barbaric war in Ukraine continues … irrespective of the fact that Russia completely failed to meet its goals there and effective and successful defeat of the Russian offence by Ukraine, unblocking of ports for outgoing agri products shipments, the company has no possibility to ship its products through Ukrainian Black Sea ports.


In view of the above, the company was investigating various logistics options which would allow continuing its manganese ore deliveries. As a result, it was decided to proceed with manganese ore deliveries via Port of Rotterdam.


The vessels are being accepted at the port for discharging with cargoes then being unloaded and stored there at the bulk terminals. The company has made storage and transhipment contract with two reliable forwarding companies active at the port of Rotterdam and is expecting that volume of manganese ore operations there may reach a quarter of million tons.


This is a solution that is allowing us to continue manganese ore trading business thereby overcoming limitations which we previously encountered due to the blockade of the Ukrainian Black Sea ports. Nevertheless, we do hope this is temporary solution, as we do believe Ukrainian ports to be deblocked sooner than one may think about” – says Olena Kurta CEO of Primeore Trading (Polska) Sp. z o.o.
