Lithuania: Klaipeda port ready to ship Ukrainian grain: CEO

Lithuania’s Klaipeda State Seaport could ship around 10 million tonnes of Ukrainian grain per year, CEO Algis Latakas announced, BNS reports. However, the logistics of transporting the grain to the port remained complicated, he noted. If the issue of logistics was solved, the port could begin handling Ukrainian grain today, Latakas stated. Earlier, Transport Minister Marius Skuodis said that queues on Ukraine’s border with Poland were hampering rail logistics. Currently, Klaipeda State Seaport has a capacity to handle 10-15 million tonnes of grain, including 3.5mn tonnes of Lithuanian grain exports.
