Russia Shipping Report Q4 2014 - New Study Released

New Transportation market report from Business Monitor International: "Russia Shipping Report Q4 2014"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2014 -- Two of Russia's major ports - the port of St Petersburg, Russia's main box facility, and the port of Novorossiysk, one of the country's largest ports in terms of total throughout - are set to hold their respective positions in Russia's maritime sector in 2014. Although we expect Russia's consumer story to remain attractive over the next few years, bouying container throughput growth at the country's ports, economic growth will be modest in 2014 and 2015 as the main driver of growth over the past decade - household consumption - continues to weaken, with the impact of Western sanctions adding to a structural slowdown in household lending in recent quarters, as banks started to ramp up loan-loss provisioning and the authorities took steps to rein in unsecured household lending.
