February 10, 2021

The turnover of the seaports of Russia in January 2021 amounted to 63.35 million tons, which is 7.8% less than the same period last year, the press service of “Rosmorrechflot” reports.

The volume of transshipment of dry cargo amounted to 30.05 million tons (+ 4.7%), liquid cargo – 33.3 million tons (-16.7%).

It is noted that a significant decrease in transshipment indicators, primarily for liquid cargo, is associated, among other things, with a long streak of storms in the Black Sea, which suspended the traffic flow and the operation of port facilities. In particular, the idle period for Novorossiysk seaport was almost three weeks. As a result, the volume of transshipment in the port compared to January 2020 fell by 22.9% – to 9.968 million tons.
