August 3, 2020: Russia will be building a seaport with a capacity of 12.5 million tonnes in Kalmykia region near the city of Lagan in the Caspian Sea to connect with operating ports of Iran, India, and Kazakhstan.

The new port will consist of 32 off-loading terminals and other facilities, such as elevators with a capacity of 3 lakh tonnes of simultaneous storage for grain crops, as well as terminals for storing and shipping vegetable oils, fruits, vegetables, and other goods. The grain and container terminals will have the capacity of five million tonnes each, while the liquid cargo terminal will have a capacity of 5 lakh tonnes.

“Container transportation is one of the promising directions the new port will take, as existing sea transport hubs in the neighbouring regions are not adapted for this. Container traffic is planned to operate mainly from India and the Persian Gulf countries, through Iran. The Russian complex in the Caspian Sea will significantly reduce the time it takes to deliver goods from China and other Asian countries to Europe,” said the Russia Today report.
