It is located on the crossroad of the most important transport lines connecting Russia and Europe and it is widely attractive for the direct cargo transit.

Competition and partnership in the North-West:

  • A struggle for cargo flows in the Baltic region
  • Joint international projects (infrastructure, cargo flows)
