Since August last year, more than 30 million tons of agricultural products have been exported via the Ukrainian Corridor and the Danube River. This is more than 90% of our country’s total agricultural exports, according to the Ministry of Reconstruction of Ukraine.

In the almost 7 months of the Ukrainian Corridor’s operation, 854 vessels have exported 26 million tons of cargo from the ports of Greater Odesa to 42 countries, of which more than 18 million tons were products of Ukrainian farmers.

“Export volumes through the Ukrainian Corridor have almost reached the pre-war level of exports from the ports of Pivdennyi, Odesa and Chornomorsk. In December, we exported 6.8 million tons by sea, and in January – 6.7 million tons. Even though February is the shortest month of the year, we still hope to maintain exports at least as high as in previous months. A stably operating corridor is important both for Ukraine’s economy and for the world’s food security. The Ukrainian corridor and the Danube ports currently account for more than 90% of agricultural exports. And given the situation with the blocking of our exports on the western border, we are preparing to increase agricultural exports across the Danube, bypassing the border with Poland. UDP is already preparing barge caravans that can carry more than 2,000 trucks per month,” said Oleksandr Kubrakov, Vice Prime Minister for Recovery, Minister of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure of Ukraine.

Currently, the ports of Odesa, Chornomorsk and Pivdennyi are expecting another 111 vessels to arrive, which will export 3.3 million tons of cargo after loading.
