Türkiye, Armenia and China have become leaders in cargo turnover with Russian regions

Turkey, Armenia, and China have been standing out in freight transportation with the regions of the Russian Federation over the past three years. As reported by Evgenia Lazareva, head of the “Transport Services” category on the “Avito Services” platform, the largest growth in freight transportation has been recorded between the Southern Federal District and Turkey. Freight from the South of Russia began to be sent to Turkey almost 17 times more often.

China also took second place in popularity in freight transportation destinations, with goods being sent to the Middle Kingdom 11 times more often. Demand for freight transportation from the Southern Federal District to Armenia also increased by 11 times, Lazareva noted.

The Russian government had previously reported high demand for freight transportation along the Russia-Turkey, Russia-Iran-India, and Russia-China corridors for the period 2022-2025. Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin at the International Export Forum “Made in Russia – 2023” noted that Russia will continue to strengthen economic cooperation with friendly states.
