Fifteen ships loaded with grain are technically able to depart from Ukrainian ports and two extra are within the commissioning part, Ukrainian Deputy Minister of Agricultural Coverage Taras Vysotskyi stated on tv immediately, quoted by Ukrinform.
“As we speak it was confirmed that about 15 ships are technically prepared and two extra are nearing completion. At the moment site visitors will probably be two-way, together with the strategy of cargo ships,” the ministry stated.
These ships are primarily meant for the transportation of cereal crops (corn, wheat, barley), and later oilseeds and processed merchandise. Every ship can transport from 10,000 to 60,000 tons.
