Taking into account the need to involve cranes with high load-carrying capacity, transshipping operation was planned so that the barge was driven under the load by the arrival of car transport. This was done in order to reduce the cost of the overload. Then the cargo was transported to the port of Hamburg, Germany, where the ship proceeded to the port in the city of St. Petersburg.
