In February, the port handled 2,175,000 tons, up by 1.5% YoY. Transshipment of dry cargo totaled 1,922,100 tons, up by 1.7%, including 709,800 tons of grain, down by 9.1%, metal – 628,200 tons, up by 18.8%.

The port authorities attribute the fall in transshipment of liquid bulk cargo to foreign policy and the decision of the Russian government to export its oil cargo exclusively via the ports of Russia.
