Freight rates went back to normal after the Russian attack on a bulk carrier in the port of Odesa region
The cost of freight in the Black Sea temporarily increased after the Russians fired on a civilian vessel. The rates have now returned to their previous levels.
As a result of the attack by the Russian Federation on a civilian ship in the port of Odesa region, sea freight rates increased by $20 per ton. At the same time, the number of shipowners willing to load in Ukrainian ports has decreased, Reuters reported.
However, later the costs of transportation on this route returned to the previous level. Sources claim this.
Currently, the Ukrainian maritime corridor continues to operate. So, on the morning of November 13, the bulk carrier Ocean Leo left the Port of Pivdennyi. The deadweight of the vessel reaches 177.7 thousand tons, the length is 289 m, and the width is 45 m.
Also, on October 12, the bulk carrier Georgia S with a deadweight of 75,200 tons entered one of the Black Sea ports.
