On the 8th week, freight rates in the Azov-Black Sea region began to fall, reaching a level of $ 70 for a shipment of 3,000 tons of wheat from Azov to Marmara Sea ports. It is worth noting that the rates are decreasing, among other things, due to some improvement in weather conditions, but, above all, due to a strong increase in export fees. It is already known that from March 1st to March, 8th it will amount to 5275.2 rubles per ton for wheat, for the export of barley the tax will be 3872.3 rubles per ton, for the export of corn — 2264.6 rubles per ton. The main number of sale contracts is currently concluded for shipments in these dates. It should also be said that after some lull on the part of Turkish buyers, requests for the ports of the Marmara Sea have again become the most required among the shippers.
