BUCHAREST, May 16 (Reuters) - Ukraine shipped 3.05 million metric tons of grain through the Romanian Black Sea port of Constanta in the first four months of 2024, down by a third from the same period of last year, the port authority told Reuters on Thursday.

Constanta Port data, which does not include volumes handled through smaller Romanian Danube ports and rail and road exports to southern European states, showed that 890,000 tons of Ukrainian grain left port in April.

Overall grain exports through Constanta were up 14.8% on the year at 10.7 million tons. (Reporting by Luiza Ilie; Editing by Kirsten Donovan)
