Ukraine grain shipments resume to Euro-Silo, North Sea Port

Ukraine grain shipments resume to Euro-Silo, North Sea Port

(Posted on 09/09/22)

After months of blockades, a grain ship from the Ukraine has today arrived at North Sea Port. The vessel moored at Euro-Silo at Sifferdok in Ghent.

The ship, 'Zhe Hai 505' left the port of Odessa with 30,000 tons of rapeseed on board. More ships are scheduled for mid and late September, which will help restart the transhipment of grain from Ukraine. During the first eight months of this year, the amount of grain shipped from Ukraine to North Sea Port fell by 60% compared to the same period in 2021. In a normal year, some 1.5 million tons (2021) are imported, rising to as much as 2.1 million tons (2019).

Euro-Silo receives 4.5 million tons of grain, seeds and derivatives annually, of which 25-30% comes from Ukraine, depending on the harvests.

Under the auspices of the United Nations, a corridor for grain ships has been created in the Black Sea to allow the export of grain from Ukraine. Euro-Silo and North Sea Port are helping to establish this grain corridor. From the very start of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, North Sea Port has been supporting companies and organisations that are seeking to mitigate these terrible events.

North Sea Port manages, operates and develops the 60-kilometres-long cross-border port area from the Dutch port of Vlissingen to Ghent in Flanders. The port is versatile, multimodal, and offers space for development. Since its existence, it has ranked among the top of the European seaports and with 250 staff members, actively contributes to more prosperity in its region in Belgium and the Netherlands.
