Niigata Prefecture intends to create a ferry line with Primorye

The authorities of the Japanese prefecture of Niigata intend to establish a ferry service between their administrative center and Primorye, investing their own funds, as well as money from private investors. The cargo-passenger ship will sail once a week, the cost of a round trip will be from $ 400.

Representatives of Primorsky transport companies are sure that the ferry will not be popular with passengers, but they consider it promising to use the ferry service to transport cars from Japan to Russia. “The Japanese will have a chance to take a share in the freight market if they put a car carrier on this line instead of a passenger ferry. Moreover, it would be good if this car carrier, in addition to Niigata, also entered Toyama, where representatives of Russian firms buying Japanese used cars are concentrated, ”suggested Roman Sultanov, deputy general director of Vladtrek, which imports cars from Japan to Russia.

“The share of imports of used Japanese cars will decline. But the Sollers car plant in Vladivostok plans to increase the volume of Japanese cars produced. This will lead to an increase in freight traffic in the form of components ”, - in turn, suggested the head of the Department of International Cooperation and Tourism of the Primorsky Territory Administration Alexei Starichkov.
