ICS forecasts the growth of transit on the Northern Sea Route

“Transit transportation along the lanes of the Northern Sea Route is growing gradually. We already see this reality”, Esben Poulsson, Chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), said in his interview with the Russian Shipping portal (PortNews Media Group).

Esben Poulsson also emphasized that Russia succeeds in development of its icebreaking fleet.

“Therefore, we forecast the growth of transit on the route.  The flow of transit cargo there will not be comparable to that of the Suez Canal, but it will increase anyway”, said ICS Chairman.
