    Throughput of UCL Port up 4% to 8.89 mln t in QI’2016

    In January-March 2016, the companies of the stevedoring division of UCL Port (part of UCL Holding) handled 8.89 mln t of cargo (+4%, year-on-year), says T.A.Management UCL Holding.

    According to the statement, the increase in the total cargo volume handled by the division was driven by the increase in container throughput by 93% to 1.78 mln t.

    Transshipment of import cargo increased by 26%, or 0.22 mln t. The share of imports increased by 2 percentage points to 11.7%, or 1.04 mln t. Export flows accounted for 87% (down 2 p.p.) which makes 7.73 mln t. Coastal traffic operations accounted for 1.3%.

    Container throughput of UCL Port surged by 96% to 149,200 TEUs due to high performance of Container terminal Saint-Petersburg. Export volumes surged by 110.3% to 79,200 TEUs, import – by 86.4% to 66,900 TEUs. According to Q1 2016 results, CTSP remains a leader among the Russian sea container terminals with its 32.9% market share in the Baltic Sea.

    Transshipment of general cargo fell by 11% to 2.04 mln t due to 42-pct decrease in transshipment of metal scrap (to 0.21 mln t) caused by the fall of purchase prices in importing countries and redirection of cargo flows to the domestic market. 

    The decline was also seen in the sector of ferrous metal – down 4% to 1.2 mln t. Transshipment of non-ferrous metal climbed by 2% to 0.4 mln t. In QI’2016, transshipment of motor grew by 25%, year-on-year, to 7,700 units.

    Dry bulk and loose cargo handling declined by 3% to 2.72 mln t with the transshipment of mineral fertilizers plunging by 89% (to 0.02). Coal shipments fell by 6% to 1.74 mln t while transshipment of grain climbed by 47% to 0.77 mln t. 

    Transshipment of oil cargo fell by 8% to 2.34 mln t.
