The company also received savings in fuel and security, as the ship passed through pirate-free regions. Following the NSR leads to a reduction in the cost of passing the Suez canal. Thus, the total savings on the journey are 300 000 €.
From August to October, the Northern sea route is optimally short and fast for the delivery of project cargo from Asia to Europe. Oboronlogistics plans to continue work in this direction.
