Motor vessels of the Volga Shipping Company transport cargoes from St. Petersburg ports, (including Ladoga and Onega lakes), Moscow and the Upper Kama (Kambarka, Berezniki and Solikamsk) to Astrakhan and the Sea of Azov ports, including the Kavkaz port.

The main types of cargo transported by the Volga Shipping Company:

During the period of navigation the Volga Shipping Company provides operation of more than 200 self- and non-self-propelled vessels as well as technical fleet, which transport about 7.5 million tons of cargo.

For cargo transportation the Volga Shipping Company uses 74 Volgo-Don type motor vessels with cargo capacity of 5,000 tons, 50 pusher tugs with capacity of 800 to 2400 hp, with barge trains having cargo capacity of 4.5-18 thousand tons, 78 non-self-propelled barges.
