    Port Bronka starts creation of a customs warehouse

    Fenix LLC, operator of MSCC Bronka (Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg), says it will start implementing the project on creation of a state-of-the-art customs warehouse in 2018.

    The facility covering 6,000 sqm will be a public warehouse available for storing of any goods and for being used by any person authorized to deal with goods. It will comprise a sheltered loading/unloading area, a weighing zone, telecommunications systems and equipment complying with the requirements set forth by the Federal Customs Service of Russia. The facility will be also used as a customs inspection zone.

    As of today, two customs warehouses are available at Big Port St. Petersburg: those of CCTL JSC and Sudomech Supply Ltd. Other facilities are located beyond the port limits: those of Voskhod LLC, Bee Logistic LLC, Tamarix LLC, Pargolovskiy TLK LLC and Morskiye Vorota LLC.

    Those facilities are not sufficient to cope with the demand for the services of customs warehouses. Therefore, participants of foreign trade activities move have to move their goods to other facilities in the region under customs transit procedure. That results in increase of cargo owners’ expenses and extension of customs procedures. To avoid this, Russian importers prefer using warehouses in the Baltic states and Finland.  

    Additional infrastructure at Big Port St. Petersburg will let eliminate the deficit of storage facilities and reduce the expenses of those involved in foreign trade activities, believes Aleksey Shukletsov, Executive Director of MSCC Bronka.

    “With the customs warehouse within the port limits it will be much easier to perform foreign trade operations”, emphasized Aleksey Shukletsov.

    The businesses are interested in having their cargo placed at the customs warehouse of Big Port St. Petersburg. According to Yevgeny Golubtsov, head of Zeppelin Russland’s Department for International and Domestic Shipping, the company is looking into participation in ‘customs warehouse’ project in the territory of MSCC Bronka. The company experts believe that implementation of this project will let meet a range of challenges: reduction of expenses, optimization of cargo flows, application of a new model for efficient distribution of goods allowing for a faster response to market changes.

    MSCC Bronka (Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex Bronka) is located on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, where the Dam and the Ring Road border the territory of Lomonosov. Bronka is the only deepwater terminal at the port of Saint-Petersburg. Its water area and the access canal is 14.4 meters deep. Container terminal of MSCC Bronka comprising 5 berths is 1,220 meters long, the dock line of its Ro-Ro terminal (1 berth) is 210 meters. 

    MSCC Bronka specializes in transshipment of containers and Ro-Ro/general/oversize cargo. Its container terminal covers 107 hectares, the Ro-Ro terminal - 57 hectares, logistics center – 42 hectares.

    The capacity of Bronka’s Phase 1 is 1.45 million TEUs and 130,000 units of Ro-Ro cargoes. In the future the MSCC Bronka expansion will help increase the facility's container throughput to 1.9 million TEUs and 260,000 Ro-Ro units.
