The growth in freight traffic from China provoked an increase in the cost of road transport in the Far East. Over the year, traffic from the Amur Region to the European part of Russia increased by 154%, from Transbaikalia - by 114%, from Primorsky Krai - by 97%. 

As the Kommersant, currently, the demand for road transport has also increased due to the pre-New Year rush. The growth of applications for transportation from Primorye in November tripled compared to the same period last year. In Transbaikalia, where queues at the borders remain, the number of applications increased by 161% over the year. Demand has also grown significantly in the Amur region - by 114%. The situation has slightly changed only in the Khabarovsk Territory, where the number of orders increased by only 74% over the year.

According to experts, a serious load on the Far East from import traffic from China and other Asian countries leads to congestion at seaports and railway terminals. Importers are trying to switch to road transport, but this direction is also heavily overloaded.

As a rule, the “high season” begins at the end of November and prices have already increased within 40%. Prices are also rising due to coronavirus restrictions.
