To date, Ukraine is one of the key players on the global grain market. Its grain and oilseed markets are characterized with clear export orientation. According to the forecasts for 2013/14 MY, the share of exports of grains and pulses will cover 50% of their general production, the share of rapeseed exports - 93%, soybeans - 52%, and sunflower oil - 89%.

Active export trading with Ukrainian plant growing commodities and its by-products is conditioned by the presence of rather broad geographical diversity of selling markets and trade relations with importers, which are documented by various international contracts. In addition, during export operations traders transport agricultural commodities by different transportation means, which usually provide qualitative changes to the commodities. Therefore, there are formed additional risks for buyers or sellers, depending on terms of the contract.

APK-Inform Agency and International Law Firm InterLegal announce a new study focusing in two main directions: analysis of statistical information on the export trading of the major grains and oilseeds, and legal aspects of the export trade. In particular, within frames of the material there is analyzed in detail the dynamics of export supplies of the main grains and oilseeds from Ukraine in 2012/13 MY by various types of transport, and delivery conditions.
