Ukraine continues exporting grains from the Crimean terminals – Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation
Despite the current events in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the grain terminals of Sevastopol provide grain shipment operations in normal mode, declared Sergei Stoyanov, General Director of Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation, on March 5.
According to him, on March 3, 2014, the vessel MARITSA left the grain terminal Yuzhny Sevastopol with the cargo of 20 thsd tonnes of maize in the direction of Italy.
On March 4 the company Louis Dreyfus Commodities Ukraine shipped 25 thsd tonnes of maize to Spain from the grain terminal Avlita on the board of DD Vanguard.
According to trading companies exporting grains via Sevastopol grain terminals, rail cars with grain cargoes continue arriving, but they expect for reducing of the traffic because of the present situation in the Crimea.
But grain cargoes supply by road to the sea terminals is made almost exclusively from the territory of the Crimea, resulting in decreasing of the average daily grain delivery by vehicles in 3 times.
