Vladivostok

The Port of Vladivostok, located on the Sea of Japan in Russia’s Far East, is a major Pacific gateway and the country’s largest Pacific port. It is crucial for both commercial and military purposes. The port handles a wide range of cargo, including containers, oil, coal, and grain, and serves as a key link in the Trans-Siberian Railway, facilitating trade between Asia and Europe. Its ice-free status throughout the year enhances its operational capacity. Vladivostok Port also supports the Russian Pacific Fleet and plays a pivotal role in regional economic activities and international trade routes.
