  • Railways - Northern railway (190 trains a day).

The waters of the Sheksna and Rybinsk reservoirs (Volga-Baltic Waterway) flow through its territory from north to south. The Industrial Park is in proximity to the airports of Vologda and Cherepovets. The Sheksna Industrial Park is situated in the vicinity of consumption markets of Moscow and St.Petersburg, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. Thus, highways, water carriage, aviation and railways enhance the SIP's advantage in logistics.
