Logistics in Russia

Overview by Globlatrade.net:
Main Useful Means of Transport
Even if the rolling stock needs modernizing, the rail network is the most used means of goods transport.
It represents 7% of global traffic.
There are no motorways and the infrastructure is inadequate for goods transport (19% of all goods traffic). Nevertheless, projects are underway to open up the country towards the West.
Russia has 41 large ports of which only 11 are equiped with infrastructures for import-export; the biggest one is St Petersburg (42 million tonnes). The country is open to the sea on 3 sides: the Baltic sea, the Black sea and the Pacific Ocean. The government has an ambitious modernization project and wants to increase the capacities of port terminals.
Domestic air freight is not widespread.
