Northern Sea Route Sets Cargo Record

Another Northern Sea Route Record

While shipping season on the Northern Sea Route (NSR) still lasts this Arctic shortcut has already broke the record from the last year’s season, the Barents Observer reports.

Up to now 35 vessels have sailed between Asia and Europe through NSR carrying one million tons of shipment which is already 200, 000 tons more compared to the previous season.

Namely, this year’s sailing season can last for another month due to favourable ice conditions in the Arctic, so it is expected that the cargo transport will rise even more.

The vessels that sail through the route are mostly carriers of petroleum products followed by liquid cargo carriers and a fish transportation vessel.
