Container ship ‘Transit Shamora’ arrived at the berth # 42 of the “Pervomaisky” terminal of Vladivostok seaport (VMPP). This is the first vessel owned by the “Transit” regular maritime service, which connects the ports of China and VMPP. The vessel sailing under the Russian flag was built in 2008, its capacity is 704 TEU, deadweight 8500 t.

The “Transit” sea line provides direct service Qingdao (China) – Xingang (China) – Vladivostok without reloading in Busan. The transit time on the way from the ports of China to the VMPP is 4 days, with a regularity of one flight every two weeks.

The launch of a new own ship of the sea line will reduce delivery times and increase the throughput of the transport corridor between Russia and China, according to VMPP.
