According to experts, every month the Arkhangelsk Region fills up to 2,000 containers, which are transported by railways. This terrestrial route requires more time and handling. The Sevmorput vessel may serve the Far East destination between July and December.

In early March, the ship came for the first time to the port of Arkhangelsk. It took aboard 10,000 tonnes – equipment and construction materials for the Arctic LNG-2 project.
