Grain ships originating from the Black Sea or bound for Iran are about the only ones still sailing through the Red Sea as Houthi militants continue to attack vessels in the area, analysts said on Friday. “Just about all (dry bulk grain) vessels going from the Americas and western Europe are avoiding the Red Sea, the only exception is vessels going to Iran, they’re still taking the Red Sea route when shorter,” said Ishan Bhanu, lead agricultural commodities analyst at data provider and analysts Kpler. “All vessels we are tracking going from the Black Sea to Asia are going through the Red Sea, almost without exception,” he added.
