In August 2022 Ukraine exported almost 2.6M tons of grains.
After opening of grains corridors through Ukrainian Black Sea ports in the second half of August Ukrainian grains export expectedly increased.
As Ukrainian ports remain blocked, the main routes for Ukraine's grain exports are currently rail transportation through Poland, Romania and Moldova, as well as barges on the Danube to the Romanian port of Constanta.
Vs. July it grew by 53% or 0.9M tons up to 2.6M tons.
Along with it during the first decade of September Ukraine already exported more than 1M tons of grains. So if the grains corridor will work we can expect that Ukraine will reach its target to export 3M tons of grains in a month already in September.
Despite significant problems with logistics with opening of grains corridor Ukrainian companies continued its efforts to export grains through Poland and Romania. Exporters try to keep this option to export through western border of the country for the case export through the ports of Black Sea will be stopped again.
