The Transportation Corridor North-South
Route: Baltic Sea – Russia – Azerbaijan – Iran – India.
The main role of the North-South corridor is transportation of goods from India and the Gulf countries, into Russia, Western Europe, the Baltic and Scandinavian countries. The main advantage of the North – South transit corridor in comparison with other routes is the reduction in the distance and delivery time of cargo transportation by two or three times. Sea freight transportation to Helsinki through the Persian Gulf – the Suez Canal – Mediterranean Sea – Baltic Sea is 45 – 60 days, while the delivery time along North – South corridor – 20 – 25 days.
