Published: 27 July 2022

BIMCO's Chief Shipping Analyst, Niels Rasmussen, has written about grain exports from Ukraine in his weekly "Shipping Number of the Week" series.

On 22 July, Russia and Ukraine signed an agreement with Turkey and the United Nations to allow grain exports from three ports in western Ukraine: Yuzhne, Chornomorsk, and Odesa. Combined, the three ports accounted for 65% of the country’s total grain exports over the past five years. Exports could, however, face several difficulties.
