Four logistics centers will be created in Yakutia in 2022
Authorities of Yakutia intend to build four trade and logistics centers in 2022. Thus, residents of remote Arctic regions will be provided products at reduced prices. This was announced by Vladimir Chernogradsky, Minister for Arctic Development and Northern Affairs of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), on Monday during a working visit to the Tiksi settlement.
"Trade and logistics centers should solve this issue of food. We will allocate 241.1 million rubles for the construction of four such centers in Bulun, Verkhoyansk, Zhigansk and Srednekolymsk districts. Besides, 67 million rubles are to be given for the creation of intra-district delivery networks. That will make 308.2 million rubles in total", - the Minister said. He explained that three such facilities will be created already in 2021.
He has added that products will be delivered via Northern Sea Route; then small aircrafts will get the provision to the settlements.
Construction of such hubs should reduce the price of products, provide year-round availability of vegetables in the Arctic, as well as reduce operating costs. These centers will be provided with modern equipment for buying and processing of local products, vegetable storage facilities and freezers.
