Over the first nine months of 2017, exports of Russian wheat, rye and corn to Iran through Makhachkala Sea commercial port grew by almost 30%, reaching 220,000 tons, the press service of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of Dagestan reported. According to the ministry, grain deliveries from Russia through Makhachkala Port will only grow, UkrAgroConsult—a Ukraine-based group offering consulting/information services in the agricultural and food industries of the Black Sea region— reported on its website

Grain enters trade port by road and rail, mainly from Krasnodar and Stavropol regions, as well as from Rostov Oblast. Before loading onto ships, grain enters special bins for temporary storage, where its quality is checked.

Makhachkala Port possesses 12 storage bins with a capacity of 1,500 tons each. Now the grain terminal of the port works round the clock, as its production capacity is not enough, the report added.
