Donetsk, Oct 19 — DAN. Some 2,000 tons of grain have been loaded on a vessel at the Mariupol port in a day, the Donetsk People’s Republic Transport Ministry press service said on Thursday.

“Thanks to optimized transshipment and professional stevedore crews, the port has achieved faster grain loading rates, ” the press service said. “Some 2,000 tons were loaded within a workday.”

The port has transshipped some 107,000 tons of various cargoes since the beginning of the year, it added.

The Mariupol port resumed operation in late May 2022 as it dispatched the first vessel with a load of metal products to the Rostov region. It became a transport hub which receives construction materials for rebuilding the region and dispatches grain ships.*jk
