    «Total volumes in H1 2015 increased 2.1% year-on-year, which is in line with our best-case scenario. It is worth noting, that we managed to catch up with last year on grain volumes as soon as export duties on wheat were loosened, despite the 5.1% reduction of grain volumes at Russian seaports in total. Growth in total volumes was largely backed up by the 2 million tonnes increase in oil products transshipment, which represents 14% year-on-year increase, way ahead of the industry’s average. Ferrous metals also outpaced the industry by 7.8 percent points and increased by 956 thousand tonnes or 19.4 % year-on-year».

Transshipment of UAN and seed oils in H1 2015 comprised 299 thousand tonnes and 148 thousand tonnes respectively.

Grain exports totaled 2,541,000 tonnes; chemical cargo comprised 527,000 tonnes; sugar accounted for 584,000 tonnes; iron ore amounted to 895,000 tonnes, and coal volumes totaled 716,000 tonnes.

    Grain volumes caught up with H1 2014 despite total transshipment of grain at Russian seaports dropping 5.1% year-on-year according to ASOP. Transshipment of iron ore also stayed at the H1 2014 level while total volume or ore at Russian seaports reduced 1.2% year-on-year according to ASOP. Coal exports increased by 253,000 tonnes or 54.6% year-on-year.
