On the 25th week freight rates dropped by several dollars in the Azov-Black Sea region. Thus, the rate for a shipment of 3,000 tons of wheat from Azov to Marmara Sea ports is $47 per ton. There are still practically no new contracts for June dates in the grain market. Shipments for July are also mostly only being calculated. At the same time, there is no sharp drop in rates in the region due to quite active shipments of coal, as well as the execution of previously concluded contracts by shipowners.
