Oboronlogistics railway ferry Ambal, operating on the Ust-Luga — Baltiysk line, usually transports large-sized cargo and heavy equipment in the interests of the Russian defense Ministry, Rosgvardiya, the Military construction complex, as well as commercial customers. However, the ferry's capabilities make it possible to transport more sensitive cargo that requires a special approach during transportation.
