Abstract: In order for Russia to improve its eastward expansion, it must strengthen its position in the Pacific and participate in the international competition for the world’s shipping of cargo. This goal can be attained only if a national shipping company (predominantly state run) is created (with a deadweight of no less than four million tons), a port hub (with a capacity of up to 300 million tons) is established, container transportation is increased (by an order of magnitude), the single-window principle is ubiquitously introduced in all ports, continuous planning is organized, and logistics centers are incorporated into an interactive network. The article discusses Federal Law No. 212 of July 13, 2015, “On the Free Port of Vladivostok.” It considers to what extent it will be able to facilitate these tasks, how the goal can be formulated, what strategy should be adopted, and what priorities should be pursued.
