On 15th week, freight rates in the Azov-Black Sea region continue to fall, although at a slower pace than in the previous two weeks. The rate for a shipment of 3,000 tons of wheat from Azov to Marmara Sea ports this week dropped to $ 48 per ton. Russian grain is still not in high demand among Turkish buyers, who continue to focus on the Ukrainian market.
At the same time, requests for shipments of various subcultures to Greece, Cyprus and Israel become more recurrent. At the same time, the export tax on wheat from April 12th will increase to 5 339.4 rubles, the export fee on barley will increase to 1 646.7 rubles from 799.4 rubles, on corn – to 3 185.7 rubles from 2 943.6 rubles per ton. It is worth saying that this week there are more requests for indications from the Russian river ports, but so far there are practically no contracts from this direction.
