    NCSP Group’s consolidated cargo turnover for January 2019 increased by 3.3% to 12.063 million tonnes

    NCSP Group reports that its consolidated cargo turnover for January 2019 increased by 3.3% compared to the same period last year and amounted to 12,063 thousand tons.

    In January 2019, the liquid cargo handling at the NCSP Group terminals had an increase of 2.4% or 206 thousand tons compared to the same period last year and amounted to 8,976 thousand tons, including 5,502 thousand tons of crude oil, 3,381 thousand tons of oil products, 71 thousand tons of UAN and 22 thousand tons of seed oils.

    The terminal for seed oils transshipment IPP LLC (launched in November 2018) continues to increase its volumes. 22 thousand tons of seed oils were processed in January 2019.

    Crude oil turnover remained the same as in January 2018 at both terminals in the ports of Novorossiysk and Primorsk. The volume of processed oil products rose by 7.3% or 229 thousand tons.

    Transshipment of liquid fertilizers (UAN) saw an increase of 7.1%, while seed oils turnover reduced by 55.8% compared to January 2018.

    In January 2019, the bulk cargo handling at the NCSP Group terminals decreased by 4.2% or 57 thousand tons compared to January 2018 and reached 1,286 thousand tons.

    The fall in bulk cargo turnover was caused by low grain transshipment rates compared to January 2018. This season the gross grain harvest in Russia decreased by 17% in comparison with the all time high harvest in 2017/2018.

    In January 2019, grain exports through NCSP Group amounted to 874 thousand tons, which is a 14.3% decrease compared to the same period last year.

    Operational performance of the general cargo handling increased mainly due to the growth in ferrous metals volumes and active sales to EU countries. Transshipment of ferrous metals and cast iron rose by 34.7% or 322 thousand tons to 1,250 thousand tons.

    Turnover of nonferrous metals, timber and perishable cargo amounted to 52 thousand tons, 31 thousand tons and 4 thousand tons, respectively.

    The volume of containers processed at the NCSP Group terminals in January 2019 amounted to 450 thousand tons or 51 thousand TEU, which was 9.5% higher in tons and 15.9% higher in TEU compared to the same period of 2018.

    In January 2019, transshipment of other cargo at the NCSP Group terminals amounted to 15 thousand tons, which is a 78.4% decrease compared to the same period last year.
