To reduce costs multimodal schemes are usually used. The logistic chain may include marine container carriers, truck trains, and railway transport.
The second best in terms of cargo transportation speed after a plane is dispatch from China by rail. Cargo goes along the Chinese Eastern or Binzhou line, then along the Trans-Siberian railway line as far as Moscow. The average delivery time is a bit more than three weeks.
Coming third in terms of speed is the combination of dispatch by sea to the port of Vladivostok and further transportation along the Trans-Siberian railway.

Delivery to remote ports takes more time. When the cargo make the greater part of the way by sea, it is transported from Chinese ports: Guangzhou, Xiamen, Ningbo, Shenzhen, Fuzhou, Shanghai and others to ports of Baltic countries, Finland or Russia: Ust-Luga, Saint Petersburg or Novorossiysk.
Although most of the said ports, including the Big Port Saint Petersburg, are situated in northern latitudes, as distinguished from passenger navigation freight navigation is all-year-round: the approach channels in the water area are cleared by icebreakers. There are no seasonal restrictions on cargo delivery by sea.
Upon arrival at the port depending on the particular transshipment point the cargo is transported by a truck train and more often by railway.
