Geographical borders of the Northern navigational route can be distinguished from the one side — with straits near Novaya Zemlya archipelago — the route borders on the meridian near the Cape Zhelaniya. From the other side, the Northern Sea Route finished near the watershed divide between Eurasia and North America. The length of the route from the Kara Sea to the Bering Sea where the farthest points of the route are makes 5600 km. Thus if one transports cargo from Saint-Petersburg to Vladivostok along the Northern Sea Route, it will make twice as fast as the route through the Mediterranean Sea, which makes 23 thousand km.
The ports which are engaged in the Northern Sea Route, are situated in the Arctic and in the Siberian rivers. Here, with the help of the arctic navigational route transportation of the fuel, products, wood, different equipment and coal takes place.

But the distance from Murmansk to Japan makes almost 13000 nautical miles if you go through the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Meanwhile the Northern Sea Route allows to reduce the distance up to 5770 miles.
