Ukrainian grain shippers have carved out a fresh export route -- via the Baltic Sea -- to send their crops abroad. 

The country has been hunting for alternative paths for its crops as the war with Russia cuts off vital shipments from ports dotting the Black Sea, stoking global food prices and raising worries over hunger. Producers have resorted to sales by land instead, ferrying grain by railway, road and river to European Union neighbors.
