The All-Russian Association of Fisheries Enterprises, Entrepreneurs and Exporters notes an increase in the cost of transporting fish in refrigerated containers. This year, it exceeded 23 rubles per 1 kg, according to the current issue of the EastRussia bulletin.

It should be noted that, according to the results of the three quarters of this year, the dispatch of fish products from the stations of the Far Eastern Railway (FER) in the western direction increased by 28,3% compared to the same period in 2020, amounting to 461,4 thousand tons. At the same time, a significant increase in the dispatch of fish was recorded in September - by almost 67,5% compared to September last year, up to 66,5 thousand tons. The main volume of fish products was shipped to customers in the Moscow Region (196,2 thousand tons), the Urals (91,6 thousand tons) and Siberia (75,9 thousand tons).

Export deliveries of fish products by rail, carried out from Uglovaya station (Primorsky Territory) since May 2020, have reached 55,9 thousand tons since the beginning of this year. This transportation has become an alternative to the delivery of fish to China by road.

At the same time, in order to avoid an increase in the cost of fish transportation, Rosrybolovstvo intends to discuss with the FAS the possibility of concluding long-term contracts between suppliers and carrier operators. It should be noted that at the beginning of this year the rates for the transportation of fish products were 9 rubles per kg in refrigerated sections and 10 rubles per kg in refrigerated containers, but in August they increased to 16 rubles and 20 rubles, respectively. As for refrigerated trucks, the average tariff for transportation among transport companies in Vladivostok was 15,5 rubles per kg at the beginning of the year, and to date - 22 rubles per kg.
