Belarus and the Leningrad region of Russia plan to increase their trade turnover by 20% this year. For the Leningrad region, Belarus is the main trade partner, invariably first among the CIS countries. One of the promising areas for increasing the trade turnover is to re-route Belarusian goods from the Baltic countries to the ports of the Leningrad region. Ust- Luga is one of the most versatile facilities. 13 terminals provide transshipment services for over 20 types of cargo.
