The Odessa sea trade port reported 2 million 615 thousand tons of cargo handled in August 2021. This is 760.5 thousand tons more (+ 41%) than in August last year.


According to the Odessa branch of the Administration of the Seaports of Ukraine, the port handled 991.4 thousand tons of grain in bulk (+ 77%), 513.3 thousand tons of oil and oil products (+ 298%) and 54426 TEU containers (+ 7%).

The versatility of the Odessa port is its undoubted competitive advantage. This allows the company to maintain consistently high production rates in a situation when the market conditions are unfavourable for one or several types of cargo. For example, last year, due to a poor harvest, we lost significant volumes of grain, but port operators handled a record amount of metal products. August of this year was distinguished by a record approach of the fleet with crude oil and a powerful start to the next grain marketing year.

Operators of oil berths and port elevators met the situation fully armed, which affected the port's performance as a whole.
