Ukraine increased sea exports to the highest level since war started

Mar 1, 2024

In February, Greater Odesa ports handled 8 million tons of cargo, including 5.2 million tons of agricultural products. These are record exports not only through the Ukrainian sea corridor, but also since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.

This is reported with reference to the press service of the Ministry of Infrastructure.


According to the report, Ukraine is approaching pre-war exports through these ports. Today, more than 90% of all agricultural exports go through the ports of Greater Odesa and the Danube ports.

In addition, Ukraine remains one of the key guarantors of food security. This is especially true for grain exports to Africa and Asia. Since the launch of the Ukrainian Corridor, 42 countries have received almost 28 million tons of cargo, of which 19 million tons are grains and oilseeds.

Currently, 113 vessels are waiting to enter the ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk, and Pivdennyi, with almost 3 million tons of cargo to be exported.

As a reminder, after Russia withdrew from the grain deal last July, a special sea corridor was created to protect grain coming from ports. According to the Navy, the corridor had reached its capacity before Russia's full-scale invasion.
