Arrange transport of goods to and from Russia

Main Useful Means of Transport
Even if the trains need modernising, the rail network is the most used means of goods transport. In 2019, Russia's transport volume in the rail freight sector amounted to approximately 2.6 trillion ton-kilometers.

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. Trucking in Russia is a US$4.78 billion industry. In 2019, Russia's transport volume in the road freight sector amounted to approximately 264 billion ton-kilometers.

Russia has 41 large ports of which only 11 are equipped with infrastructures for import-export; the biggest one is in St Petersburg (42 million tons). The country is open to the sea on three sides: the Baltic sea, the Black sea and the Pacific Ocean. According to data of the Russian Association of Commercial Seaports, first semester of 2018 container cargo volume was 2.95 million TEU, up 11.5 percent from the same period in 2017. At Far East seaports, the growth rate increased 13.5 percent from the same period last year.
