Rússia destaca viabilidade da rota do Ártico

By Phil Bainbridge

March 30, 2021 - A Rússia utilizou o bloqueio do canal de Suez, no Egipto, por um porta-contentores para destacar a sustentabilidade da sua Rota do Mar Ártico, que retira 4.000 milhas náuticas à rota pelo sul para a Ásia.

Receding sea ice is now making year-round navigation of the Northern Route possible, and cargo traffic is expected to more than double in the next few years, from 33 million tonnes to 80 million by 2024, although till a long way short of the 1.17 billion tonnes that pass through the Suez canal.

The suspension of traffic through Suez quickly disrupted world trade already suffering due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, Suez is not the only bottleneck for world trade, with the Straits of Hormuz and Malacca, and the Panama Canal, all potentially vulnerable.
