Nonetheless, the Russian shipping market, namely the container shipping, shows the positive growth. However, it happens mostly due to elevation of cooperation with shippers not the sufficient infrastructure development. National currency devaluation, caused by international sanctions, keeps creating good conditions for a strong competition between sea and railway transport.
