Abstract The article is devoted to the study of the problems of the development of seaports of the Far East in the light of the ongoing port reform, involving a large amount of investment. In this vein, the features of the development of seaports, which transship coal for export, have been are investigated. The emphasis is made on comparing the positive and negative effects for the macroregion from coal transshipment as part of the integrated development of deposits and the transfer of the coal production center from Kuzbass to the Far East. The transport infrastructure through which coal is exported and shipped, in particular the railway and ports, is considered. In this vein, a map of coal ports of was compiled. The problem of the shortage of specialized coal ports and the prospects for their construction in the macroregion are investigated.
