Manual does not say a about BSB, unfortunately. How does this box work and for which side?
Which ships (Surface ships, Raiders, Submarines or Transports) should be sent to him by Central Powers, and which Eastern Entente?
If ships have reduced combat power or cohesion - does this affect the work in box or not?
Can surface battles take place in a box like in any other area?
Any info!

It works very much like any other naval/shipping box. You might say whatever one side can do, so can the other.
Either Germany or Russia can place merchant ships here to receive some shipments. Either side can use submarines and/or naval commerce raiders.
You really cannot use this box to blockade.
Surface battles can take place in a shipping box. Typically these are attacking or defending merchants.
Not sure exactly what you mean by reduce power/cohesion, but these factors to not affect ability to conduct a mission, but may impact ship to ship exchanges.

Manual says that number of ship elements must be in boxing! But not said about cohesion. I wanted to know about it!
What type of transport is needed in boxing as Eastern Entente (Russia)?

I really know nothing about cohesion. Maybe someone else does.
This is a shipping box, so any transports operate as merchant ships. Usually Russia and Germany lack merchants ships to place here.
