The mentioned types of vessels are operated in coastal regions of the Azov, Black, Mediterranean and Baltic Seas. The main benefit of these projects is the low draft which lets the vessels sail in shallow waters and call ports in estuaries and rivers. The above mentioned vessels take the lead in grain cargoes shipments from the Azov Sea region.

Over the last few years there has been a trend towards reducing the number of old fleets. In this regard, the building of new, modern vessels is gaining momentum. The new fleet mainly has 6000-8000 mt DWT and today there is a tendency to increase the tonnage of standard shipments from 3000 mt to 5000-7000 mt.
