Transportation of goods through the Northern Sea Route is more expensive for carriers than a similar route through the Suez Canal. To make the way through the Arctic more popular, Russia is ready to compensate for some of the costs.

According to RBC, the country plans to create a state container cargo operator in the Arctic. Thanks to this, they expect to cover transportation costs and the associated possible risks. They intend to introduce this scheme for at least ten years before the Northern Sea Route becomes commercially viable.

Rosatom previously announced its intention make the Northern Sea Route a competitor to Russian Railways on the export of fish from the Far East. For this they want to use the Sevmorput lighter carrier. And in July of this year, the Dobroflot company expanded the program. delivery of fresh red fish by the Northern Sea Route. This year, two refrigerated vessels Symphony and Harmony will bring salmon to the central part of Russia. The carrier has been using the alternative route for five years.
