The shipping industry's newspaper Water Transport (media registration certificate No FS77-35138) was founded back in 1918. Over the years, the printed publication was developing along with the domestic shipping. As the print publication of the USSR's Ministry of Maritime Fleet and the Ministry of River Fleet of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, the Water Transport newspaper provided unbiased and timely coverage of both achievements and problems of the country's shipping industry. Even during the hardest years of the war the newspaper did not stopped publishing. By the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR the Water Transport was awarded the Order of Red Banner of Labor for great contribution to the development and improvement of the industry.

 IAA PortNews was awarded an order by the National Chamber of Shipping Union to re-launch within the industry's project “Russian Shipping” the newspaper Water Transport. The updated edition with nearly 100 years of history on April 15, 2011 went out of print. Today the newspaper Water Transport is published monthly.

 The complete copy of the paper is published on the portal Russian Shipping:
