The port activities are a strategic aspect in the economic development of the country and one of the key elements in functioning of the transport system in Russia. Over the past years more and more large-scale projects have been realized to create major logistics hubs. In order to correspond to trade and transport needs the seaports of the country should provide a world competitive port infrastructure and render qualitative services in the near-, mid- and long-term outlook.
