In January-October 2021, cargo traffic along the Northeast Passage increased by 1.7 million tons compared to last year. According to PortNews, it amounted to 28.208 million tons. I do not think this year the cargo flow along the Northeast Passage will exceed 35 million tons.

At the same time, the transit cargo flow has grown noticeably. Transit along the Northeast Passage was 66% more than last year (2,125 million tons). Almost the entire Northeast Passage (NP) is already covered with ice. The icebreakers Vaigach and Taimyr operate on the NP.
