Vostochny Port (port code: RUVYP) is a commercial port on the Pacific coast of Russia. It is located in Vrangel in the south of Primorsky Krai, near the southeastern coast of Nakhodka Bay. It has a total area of 50 hectares, a water depth of 12.8 meters, and is capable of handling ships up to 100,000 tons. Its annual cargo throughput is about 13 million tons, accounting for approximately 21% of the total cargo throughput of Russian ports on the Pacific coast.

Vostochny Port is an intermodal container port at the eastern end of the Trans-Siberian Railway, 18 kilometers west of Nakhodka Port. It is a hub for exporting coal and grain and handles breakbulk, bulk ore, chemicals, containers, crude oil, fertilizer, petroleum products, and timber. The largest stevedoring firm in the port is JSC Vostochny Port, which specializes in coal handling with conveyor equipment.

As a warm deep-water port, the port operates year-round and has a temperate monsoon climate with prevailing northwest winds. The average temperature in winter is -10°C, and thin ice forms from January to March every year, requiring icebreakers to assist in sailing. There is fog on 70% of the days of the year (an average of 18 days per month from June to July), and the average rainfall throughout the year is about 1,000mm.
