The Stevedore company Port Vanino resumed operations with containerized cargo from the PRC amid problems with deliveries through the Suez Canal. In early October, the second container ship was unloaded, the first ship with auto parts from the PRC was handled in September.

As IAA EastRussia was informed in the press service of the stevedore, during October the port workers plan to transship three more large consignments of containers. In the future, it is planned to receive at least four specialized ships monthly.

As noted by the general director of the company Vladimir Rogov, today the Port of Vanino has free capacities to receive container ships of the "small feeder" class with a capacity of up to 1000 TEU.

“We took advantage of the favorable market situation caused by the increase in trade from China to Russia and the EU countries against the background of the rise in the cost of shipping from China to the European Union through the Suez Canal, and again started accepting container ships,” he added.

In the first half of the year, the stevedore reduced cargo transshipment by 7,5% compared to the same period last year - to 3,5 million tons. In particular, the volume of coal transshipment decreased by 10,5% - to 2,132 million tons.

The ports of Primorye have been experiencing logistics problems since August due to the redirection of cargo traffic from China to Russia. Transportation through Vladivostok and Nakhodka and further along the Transsib turned out to be 30–40% cheaper than the sea route through Suez.

As previously reported by IAA EastRussia, the Governor of Kamchatka Vladimir Solodov asked the President's plenipotentiary in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev to deal with cargo delays from Vladivostok... Some containers are delayed for three months. Food products are delivered on time, but there is a missed delivery time for building materials.

A difficult situation has developed with delivery of goods to Chukotka... From July to September, three times fewer ships came to the ports of the Autonomous Okrug than usual.
