11 June 2008
The cargo turnover of Vladivostok Commercial Seaport totaled 2 662 800 tonnes in January-May 2008 (+64%).

The growth in turnover was achieved due to the increase in container and metal handling. Container handling was 99 042 TEU (+31.7%), imported cars and special-purpose equipment — 99 846 units (+3%). In the reported period export totaled 1 515 500 tonnes (up more than 2 times).

Metals and wire products totaled 1 094 700 tonnes (up 4.4 times). This tendency has been kept since the end of 2007 and is attributed to the growing demand for the Russian-made steel products in South East Asia. Container export totaled 38 240 TEU (+38%).

In January-May 2008, the port handled 702 100 tonnes of imported cargo (+22%). Container accounted for the
