Extreme weather conditions halted cargo shipment in Ukrainian sea ports
Today, February 8, a number of maritime ports have restricted operations with grain cargoes following the extreme weather conditions on the Black Sea, the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA) reports.
Transshipment has been suspended at the ports of Mykolaiv, Olvia and Reni because of heavy rain and fog. Harbor pilotage and cargo operations were restricted in Chernomorsk. Pilotage has been halted in Odesa and Pivdenny ports due to wind.
Operations in ports were also ceased as a result of adverse weather conditions earlier this month.
Sea ports in Ukraine provided for the transshipment of 47.28 mln t of grain in 2020, 6.578 mln t or 12.2% less YoY.
