The results of the work of the “Eastern Port” were summed up during the eighth international forum “Transport of Russia” in Moscow. Over 45 years, 500 million tons of coal were shipped to the sea harbor, of which 210 million tons over the past ten years, which was an absolute record in the industry.

As Russian Presidential Aide Igor Levitin noted at the forum, the new ports are much more technologically advanced than those that worked 20 years ago. There is a struggle for every minute of transshipment, which allows you to handle large volumes. The speaker drew attention to the growth of infrastructure and the increase in private investment in the industry.

In 2018, the cargo turnover of the Vostochny Port, which is located in the Wrangel Bay of the Primorsky Territory, reached 24,3 million tons of coal. At the beginning of this year, the third phase of a specialized coal complex was put into operation, which will increase transshipment to 50-55 million tons per year. A project worth 40 billion rubles was implemented without government funding. It allowed the creation of 600 highly qualified jobs and involves about 25 billion rubles of tax deductions to the budget until the 2026 year.
