Abstract
The article represents the authors' outlook on the logistics issue of Northeast China. Excessive expenses on logistics make it difficult to organize well-planned transportation of commodity goods from Northeast China to the world markets. Consequently, the drawback in social and economic development of Northeast China creates demographic tension on the border between China and Russia. The logistics expenses could be whittled down with the help of new logistics network, i.e. the seaports of the South of Primorsky region like Posyet or Zarubino. Additionally, in the summer period the commodity goods may be shipped to Europe through the Northern Sea Route. Northern Sea Route is an option that may significantly reduce the logistics expenses and allow raising the prosperity of the Northeast China. Economic benefits of the Northern Sea Route are considered in the article. Finally, the authors present the concept of logistic burden and adjusted logistic burden allowing one to calculate the financial benefit from utilizing faster logistics route for commodity flow of goods.
