    4 million tonnes of Ukrainian grain to be shipped soon from the Romanian port of Constanta

    Romania’s plan to double the monthly transit capacity for Ukrainian grain through its Constanta port to four million metric tons in the coming months remains achievable, the country’s Transport Minister Sorin Grindeanu said on Friday (September 15).

    Grindeanu said the ship-to-ship transfer of grains in Constanta would also help to increase capacity by 500,000 tons monthly. This allows smaller vessels carrying grain to transfer it directly on to larger ships at the port.

    Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said the aim of doubling capacity should be achieved at the start of October, reaching 4 million metric tons, which ‘can help us solve at least 50% of our exports.
