In the reported period, transshipment of ferrous metal fell by 24.5% to 616,600 t. Coal and coke handled volumes increased by 10% to 170,100 t, while oil products’ transshipment decreased 4.5 times to 56,900 t.

Kaliningrad Sea Commercial Port JSC is the largest enterprise of the regional port complex, both in terms of volume of carried out works and technical support, and a myriad of services granted to the cargo owners.
The port has a vital role in the Kaliningrad region, as practically all means of transport and the basic part of the export-import freight traffic passing through the territory of the region, close in the port.
