The first train carrying Ukrainian grain has arrived at the grain terminal at the German port of Rostock on the Baltic Sea.

The 21-car train carrying 1,200 tons of corn from Ukraine arrived in Rostock on the morning of 23 August, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Economic Pravda publication.

According to the port’s representative Jacob Lubig, the cargo from Ukraine was in transit for 5-8 days. After arriving at the Ukrainian-Polish border, the grain was reloaded into railcars with bogies for European-gauge tracks.

The corn will now be temporarily stored at the port terminal. Its next destination has not yet been announced.

According to the publication, three more trains carrying Ukrainian grain are expected to arrive in Rostock soon.

As reported earlier, the German railway operator, Deutsche Bahn, announced in July that it would begin transporting Ukrainian grain to German ports for subsequent transportation to other countries. The German ports include Rostock and Hamburg, as well as the port of Brake, which is near Bremerhaven.
