Ukraine: stocks of grain cargoes in the ports continued rising – APK-Inform Agency

The FINANCIAL -- According to the operative data of APK-Inform Agency, as of August 21 the volumes of grain cargoes, which are stocked in the port terminals of Ukraine, already reached the level of 1.75 mln tonnes. Wheat formed the main share of the accumulated volumes - 60%, or 1.06 mln tonnes. Barley stocks are estimated at 371 thsd tonnes (21%), rapeseed - 307 thsd tonnes (17%), according to APK-Inform Information Agency.


The port terminals located in Odessa oblast are the most loaded ones, which stock nearly 61% of the reporting grain cargoes (1.08 mln tonnes). Still nearly 22% of the stocks (390 thsd tonnes) are concentrated at the terminals of Nikolayev oblast.

As a reminder, the reporting volumes of grain cargoes already reached the critical level for the port terminals, and can affect the efficiency of their work. The current situation is caused by unfavorable market conditions of the grain market, according to the experts.
