Grain shipments from the Russian ports (especially from Astrakhan) continues to increase in the Caspian Sea freight market. Given small number of available sea-river vessels, the charterers already offer $26-27/t for transportation of 3,000 t of agricultural products from Astrakhan to Amirabad, while the shipowners insist on $28-30/t. The traders are ready to pay $37-38/t for shipment of 3,000 t of grain from Volgograd to Iran; meanwhile, the shipowners are aiming at rates of $40-41/t.

The volume of grain transportation from Aktau is also on the increase. At present, carrying 3-5,000 t of barley to Iran may cost $18/t. The deals for transportation of steel products from Aktau to Anzali are signed at $12.5-13.5/t.

An upward trend may be preserved in the Caspian Sea transportation market only if grain traffic keeps growing brisker. But the offer of grain for shipments from the Volga ports will certainly dwindle due to closure of river navigation starting from December 1.
