Ukrainian Sea Corridor achieves record cargo export volume in February




The cargo turnover of the ports of Great Odesa in February totaled 8 mln tonnes, of which 5.2 mln tonnes were Ukrainian farmers’ products. These are record monthly export figures not only through the Ukrainian Sea Corridor, but also during the time of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation. Oleksandr Kubrakov, the Deputy Prime Minister for the Reconstruction of Ukraine and the Minister of Community Development, Territories and Infrastructure, wrote on his Facebook page on March 1.

"We are gradually approaching pre-war export figures through these ports," stated O. Kubrakov. "Today, more than 90% of all agricultural exports go through the ports of Great Odesa and the Danube ports. Ukraine remains one of the key guarantors of food security, especially in terms of the grain export to the countries of Africa and Asia. Since the start of the Ukrainian Corridor, 42 countries have received almost 28 mln tonnes of cargo, of which 19 mln tonnes are grains and oilseeds."

He also clarified that currently 113 vessels are waiting to approach the ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk and Pivdenny, which are planned to export almost 3 mln tonnes of cargo.
