PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 23. /TASS/. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky sea port, one of the largest in Russia’s Far East, has seen a more than 24% decrease in cargo transshipment since the beginning of 2015, the port’s deputy director general said on Monday.
The main reason is the decreasing supplies of goods due to their rising prices, Ksenia Gumbina said. "Compared with January 2015, in February the cargo turnover at the port dropped by 17,700 tons (24.37%)," she said.
If compared with the same period of last year, the cargo turnover fell by 45,500 tons or 45.34%, the official said. In February 2014, the cargo turnover was estimated at 100,500 tons.
The Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky sea port, built in 1943, services the vessels all year round and has the territory of more than 30 hectares. The port is part of the Kamchatka project of territories of advanced social and economic development.
The port’s cargo turnover amounted to 1.2 million tons in 2014.
