    Handling of general cargo surged 2.3 times to 699,700 tonnes.

    Handling of cargoes carried by ferries totaled 1,042,900 tonnes (+46%). 

    The port’s container throughput fell by 19% to 49,770 TEUs.

The deep water area of the port (17.5 m) together with the approach channel (3.7 km) make Ust-Luga port the only Russian port on the Baltic Sea capable of admitting dry-cargo vessels with the deadweight of up to 75,000 tonnes and liquid cargo carriers with the deadweight of up to 160,000 tonnes.
