Transit Stuck Locally
Since the start of operations at Ust-Luga the trend to relocate port handling outside big cities has expanded both in Russia and abroad. The neighbouring Finland has built a new cargo port Vuosaari to relieve the capital based Helsinki. In St. Petersburg port, territories are being cleared out (presumably, to vacate space for cottage construction). Ust-Luga this year has reached a volume exceeding one third of that handled in the Big port of St. Petersburg.
