RUSSIA's Far Eastern Port of Vladivostok imports have increased 150 per cent in three months, said the port press office, adding that Asian companies have replaced those who left the Russian market.

The port authority stated that "the load on all regional ports and the accompanying infrastructure is growing. For example, in the last three months alone, the import of containers through the Commercial Port of Vladivostok increased by 1.5 times, up to 28,000 TEU per month. The port has absorbed this and operates as usual, 24/7 and has managed the increased load well."
Global and Asian maritime, logistics and container routes are changing. Export and import flows are being re-oriented to Russia's Far East, reports Munich's Russia Briefing.
The container lines that left the Russian market were replaced by new ones from the Asia Pacific Region. Those are: Heung-A Line, SITC, GFL, Reel Shipping, Zhonggu Shipping Group and OVR Shipping among others.
Vladivostok is important as it is the eastern hub of the Trans-Siberian railway. Containers can be loaded onto rail and transported throughout Russia, and beyond to destinations such as Mongolia, Central Asia and through to Europe.
It takes six days to travel the 9,289 kilometres to Moscow. Fresh produce such as seafood can be flown to markets in Moscow within nine hours.
