EBA Logistics Committee experts actively supported and repeatedly emphasized to the Ministry of Infrastructure, State Enterprise “USPA” on the need to reduce the rates of port dues.
On January 30th, 2018, the order of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine № 474 “On reduction of port dues” dated December 27, 2017 came into force. The order provides application of the coefficient 0.8 to tariffs for all types of ports dues, except of the lighthouse due.
