November 23 - The first sailing of FESCO Russian Pacific Line's new direct all water service to Vladivostok has departed from the Port of Tacoma offering a direct fortnightly ro-ro service to Vladivostok and all points in the Russian Far East.

"We saw a need to satisfy our customers' requirements for more sailings and stay competitive in this growing niche market," said Mike EvansFESCO's North American president. "With the improved frequency, our customers will see a quicker return on their investment and for our multi-global, Fortune 500 clients in the oil and gas, mineral, manufacturing industries, that is a big deal. The increased port calls are supported by a well established network in Russia - rail, truck, warehousing and Customs clearance - for a total logistics solution."
