The FESCO Transport Group (“FESCO”, the “Group”) shipped the first batch of loaded containers along the route St. Petersburg – Vostochny Port – Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky via the Northern Sea Route.
On October 9, 89 FESCO 40-foot containers, including those with export cargo from the largest Russian petrochemical and timber companies, departed on the Sevmorput nuclear lighter carrier from the port of St. Petersburg. The planned travel time to the Vostochny port will be 21 days, then to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky – another 4 days.
Some of the containers as part of the FESCO complex transportation will be reloaded at the port of Vostochny and will further be sent to the countries of Southeast Asia using the Group’s maritime service. Transportation along the Northern Sea Route gives FESCO clients an opportunity to diversify their export logistics flows.
