Metinvest-Shipping, Metinvest Group’s logistics provider, won the Freight Forwarder of the Year nomination in the 13th National Marine Rating of Ukraine in 2019. The Company topped the ranking for the fifth year in a row.

Metinvest-Shipping is an absolute leader in handling non-containerised cargoes in the country’s seaports and terminals. Companies handling containerised cargoes fall into a separate category.

Last year, the Company handled 32.86 million tonnes of cargo, up by 7.5 million compared with 2018. The total volume of cargo handled by Metinvest-Shipping equals to the total volume of cargo handled by other top five freight forwarders in the nomination.

Launched by the Ports of Ukraine magazine and Black Sea Trans information and analytical centre, the National Marine Rating of Ukraine is held annually with the support of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine and sectoral associations of water transport. The winners in the majority of nominations are decided using the rating scores based on the companies' performance.
