    Stevedoring division of UCL Holding handled 9.9 million tonnes of cargo in 1Q’19

    In the first quarter of 2019, companies of UCL Port, stevedoring division of UCL Holding, handled 9.9 million tonnes of cargo, up 6%, year-on-year. The growth was driven by increased transshipment of oil cargo, UCL Holding says in a press release.

    In the reporting period, transshipment of dry cargo grew by 1.4% to 7.7 million tonnes. Transshipment of oil cargo increased by 26% to 2.2 million tonnes with the handling of additional volumes in Tuapse and Taganrog.

    The share of export cargo declined by 1 p. p. to 85% of the total throughput. Imports, on the contrary, climbed by 1 p. p. to 14%. Coastal trade cargo accounts for just 1%.

    Transshipment of general cargo fell by 9% to 2.4 million tonnes, particularly due to reduced volumes of ferrous and non-ferrous metal handled at Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg. Total decrease in this segment was partially compensated by the increased transshipment of ferrous metal by Taganrog Sea Commercial Port (+19%).

    During the first three months of the year, transshipment of dry bulk cargo demonstrated a positive dynamics (+0.4%) having retained the level of the similar period in 2018 — 2.8 million tonnes.

    In the reporting period, the growth of performance indicators was achieved in the segment of containerized cargo* — by 15% versus Quarter I of 2018, to 2.5 million tonnes. Container terminal Saint-Petersburg and Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg increased their results by 20%, year-on-year, having handled 202,300 TEUs and 7,500 TEUs accordingly.
