Cargo ships at present clogged up Vladivostok Port,Russian Far East

Russian local media say many cargo ships at present clogged up Vladivostok Port, Primorye, Russian Far East, mainly amassed at port’s anchorage zones.

Media believe it’s the result of port’s handling capacities incapable of handling dramatically increased volume of cargoes, flooding now Russian Far East ports.

With war against Ukraine and all sanctions imposed on Russian shipping, Russian main sea gates abruptly moved to Far East, causing delays and clogs all along the logistics chain, in ports and along Trans Siberian Railway.

Some ships are stuck since middle of November, some even earlier.

There might be more to this story, if we look at Chinese side of this cargo boom. Chinese industry media published at least 2 articles recently, warning Chinese shipowners to be careful when they charter their ships off to Russian logistics cargoes.

Chinese industry experts assume there is some kind of PSC campaign in Russian Far East Ports, aiming at Chinese ships under Belize, Sierra Leone, Panama and other FOC flags. It is said, that such ships are detained and fined, most of all Belize-flagged ones.

Campaign embraces all 3 major Primorye ports: Vladivostok, Vostochniy; Nakhodka. Experts assume it might be campaign aimed at specifically, ships owned by Chinese companies.

Chinese maritime experts warn Chinese shipowners to indeed, avoid calling these ports until situation improves or clarifies. They believe now it’s too risky.

So former Big Brother, now junior, Russia, all of sudden, created artificial clogs in its’ own most accessible now under sanctions, Far East ports. Russia says it’s because ports are flooded with cargoes far beyond ports’ capacities. Former junior now Big Brother of Russia, China, has some doubts.

What’s the beef between two loving brothers,

Vladivostok & Russian Far East To Be Developed As Significant North-East Asian Resource & Trade Hub - Russia Briefing News

The town was founded in 1860 as a Russian military outpost and was named Vladivostok (variously interpreted as “Rule the East,” “Lord of the East,” or “Conqueror of the East”).

Its forward position in the extreme south of the Russian Far East inevitably led to a major role as a port and naval base. In 1872 the main Russian naval base on the Pacific was transferred there, and thereafter Vladivostok began to grow.

In 1880 city status was conferred on it. The city also grew in importance after the construction of the Chinese Eastern Railway across Manchuria to Chita (completed in 1903), which gave Vladivostok a more direct rail connection to the rest of the Russian Empire. Yet the city is detached from the major Far Eastern node of land transportation routes.a.
