The bulk carrier PUMA (Cayman Islands) left the Odesa Seaport this morning and is now heading to the Bosphorus along the established ship traffic corridor. The vessel was loaded with 16 thousand tons of metal and 14 thousand tons of rapeseed.

The bulk carrier entered the Odesa Seaport on February 19, 2022 and could not leave the port due to the outbreak of hostilities and the closure of the certain areas of the Black Sea.

The corridor defined by the Navigation Order of the AFU Navy is primarily used for the evacuation of ships that were in the Ukrainian ports of Chornomorsk, Odesa and Pivdennyi at the time of the full-scale invasion.

Given the blocking of the grain initiative and the world's growing need for Ukrainian products, Ukraine is considering using it for civilian vessels carrying non-military cargo, in particular grain, mainly to African and Asian countries.

Since August 15, 5 vessels have already used the temporary corridor. The container ship JOSEPH SCHULTE, bulk carriers PRIMUS and ANNA-Teresa from OCEAN COURTESY have already passed this path on August 16, 27 and September 1, respectively
