Russia Opens Ferry Service to Connect Sevastopol with Novorossiysk
A ferry service has been opened to connect Sevastopol (Crimea) with the sea port of Novorossiysk (Caucasus). The first Saint Petersburg ferry that arrived in Sevastopol on Monday has brought 80 freight trucks loaded with foodstuffs and other commodities. This was announced by Sevastopol Governor Sergey Menyailo.
“In the future, four ferries with a capacity of 140 freight trucks each and running two times a week will be used to connect Sevastopol and Novorossiysk,” Mr. Menyailo told journalists.
The administration had monitored the freight turnover between the Crimean and the Caucasian sea ports so as to confirm that some of the cargoes should be directly brought to Sevastopol.
“We have already held negotiations with the management of the Novorossiysk and Sevastopol ferries. Our task is to ensure the full utilization of ferries in both directions,” Mr. Menyailo concluded.
