The city of Igarka is located beyond the Arctic Circle, in Krasnoyarsk Krai. It lies on the bank of the Yenisei and is named in honor of the same stream. The harsh climate of the city, which is located in the Far North and the production that has stopped since Soviet times, has significantly reduced the population. In total, the settlement has 2 residential districts, where about 5000 people live in 5 —
Krasnoyarsk is almost two thousand kilometers away by river. Cargo delivery from Igarka is carried out both by sea and by river. Air transportation is used less often, mainly in order to make flights with oil industry workers to the fields.
Igarka has two ports for cargo delivery. The river port belongs to Yenisei Shipping Company, and Igarka sea port has been open since 1928 and has been working intensively ever since. All berths appeared before the Great Patriotic War and since then have been reconstructed, improved and changed. During the Soviet period, even during a short summer period, the port accepted about one and a half hundred ships.
It is possible to transport goods to Igarka not only by sea and air, but also by road. However, the railway in the town has not been built, although the government has plans to complete it and bring it to Dudinka.
Since there is an oil and gas field not far from the city, it is always important to transport cargoes to Igarka, which the oil industry needs for its work. This includes building materials, food, and household goods.
Logistics and freight forwarding to Igarka is one of the directions of our activity. In the 1950s, the USSR began to rebuild the city to make it the center of woodworking industry in the Far North. There were also attempts to reconstruct the port so that large ships with large draft could come here. As a result, polar Igarka became the southernmost port point on the Yenisei, capable of receiving sea and ocean vessels. In the 1970s, Igarka integrated sawmill worked at its full capacity and shipped more than a million cubic meters of sawn timber. Vessels cruised all summer, taking away prepared wood, the port accepted a lot of vessels for the navigation period and Igarka was the second in the country in terms of the volume of produced timber.
Now the production is minimized, but cargo transportation from Igarka is still relevant — transshipment of timber and sawn timber for export shipments. Since the launch of the oil and gas field, the port has become even more demanded.
Shipping from Igarka to Arkhangelsk and other Arctic ports, with customs clearance, if the goods are exported, is our task. We completely take care of the loading, packaging, and with the help of special fasteners observe the safety of goods during the sea voyage.
Igarka seaport has onshore berths, with a length of almost 600 m and mooring berths, the length of which reaches almost 2 km. The port is able to receive ships with a draft of up to 8 m. Igarka allows to work with large-sized cargo without using special equipment, as the port is equipped with own floating cranes and harbor tugs.
