The departure of major international foreign companies in 2022 had a major impact on the structure of the container shipping market. Exports and imports with the Russian Federation on some routes were effectively restricted. Opportunities for Russian companies and companies from ‘friendly’ jurisdictions to enter new markets have opened up, with companies promptly replacing retired capacity and creating logistics services that are resistant to change. Over the past two years, a number of new services with China have been launched, trade with Southeast Asia is expanding, the first services with the African continent and Latin America have been launched, and the influence and potential of all the main international transport corridors, East–West, North–South, and the Northern Sea Route, are increasing. Taking into account, therefore, the key tasks set by the country’s leadership, such as the development of new transport corridors and modern logistics infrastructure, Russian operators have managed not only to create an extensive network of routes across the Russian Federation, but also to enter new foreign markets and occupy a leading position there. What new challenges will Russia’s logistics industry face in coming years? What is the potential for boosting cooperation with countries in the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America? What additional technological solutions are needed for sustainable operation in the new logistical realities? What additional measures of support from the state are required?
