Different sources of information were compare and we have found that cutting distance is substantial, and therefore is highly recommended if conditions permitting the ship navigate this route to cross the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic or vice versa. And it is due of it, that the maritime traffic has increased the use of this new route. The development of new technologies like the icebreaker ships, had made it an easier way. All the expenses were taken in consideration while the research has been done. As we had checked throughout the research we had seen that depending on the type of vessel to which we are referring fees vary. Through studies in the INSROP 13 ' in which it was shown that the hiring of ships icebreakers for escort was profitable only in cases in which it would mobilize more than a certain number of tons of cargo All alternative routes that have been mentioned have tried to compete with this new seaborne which apparently has left them off the market. Shipowners shall make every effort to optimize the cost travel.
El Northeast Passage, es una ruta oceánica ártica la cual conecta el océano Atlántico y Pacífico, pasando por las costas árticas de Rusia y Noruega. Una de las causas primordiales que ha colaborado a que se produzca la apertura de esta ruta durante un periodo más prolongado es el efecto invernadero.
