In September alone we loaded 1 113 thousand tons of grain. On the other hand, worsening weather conditions in September have negatively affected transshipment of many cargoes.

    Transshipment of iron ore and ore concentrate, chemical cargo, and sugar comprised 1 894 thousand tons, 571 thousand tons, and 422 thousand tons respectively.

    Volumes of iron ore and ore concentrate decreased in September comparted to August 2017 due to stormy weather, maintenance works at some mines, growing local consumption, and a drop in global prices in view of steel production cuts in China.
