On the 36th week, the trend for increasing freight rates continues in the Azov-Black Sea region. Thus, contracts for a shipment of 3,000 tons of wheat from Azov to Marmara Sea ports are concluded at the level of $ 64 per ton. The long waiting for the passage of the Kerch Strait, taking around 10 days, is one of the main reasons for the growth of freight in the region. In addition, it is worth noting that shipowners became more willing to consider voyages to long-distance destinations in order not to face the problem of waiting for the passage of the strait in the coming weeks again. Meanwhile, the fee rate on wheat exports from September 6 is 4007.6 rubles against 3729.2 rubles per ton a week earlier. The tax on barley increased to 574.8 rubles from 431.8 rubles per ton, on corn up to 1954.9 rubles from 1931.5 rubles per ton.
