On the 20th week, the rates in the Azov-Black Sea region began to rise again. Thus, deals for the shipment of 3,000 tons of wheat from Azov to Marmara Sea ports are concluded at the level of $ 40 per ton. The increase in rates is primarily due to an increase in cargo traffic in the Black Sea, both from Russian ports and from the Danube ports of Ukraine, from where grain is now being exported en masse. It is worth noting that in Izmail and Reni there are huge queues for loading, in which conditions some cargoes are redirected to neighboring Romanian and Bulgarian ports. At the same time, there is no large flow of cargoes in the Azov Sea. Among the main nomenclatures of goods are bran and wheat. In addition, this week charterers began to calculate the shipment of grains from the Russian river, primarily to the ports of the Marmara Sea and Mersin.
