    Throughput of UCL Port in 9M’16 was flat y-o-y at 24.9 million tons

    In January-September 2016, stevedoring division of UCL Port (part of UCL Holding) handled 24.9 mln t of cargo, which is flat, year-on-year, says press center of UCL Holding. 

    The positive dynamics was shown in the sector of container transshipment – by 52% to 5.3 million tons (taking into consideration the results of Container terminal Saint-Petersburg CJSC, Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg JSC and Taganrog Commercial Seaport JSC) with Container terminal Saint-Petersburg holding a leading position among container terminals of Russia.

    Bulk cargo handling was almost flat at 8.2 mln t. Transshipment of dry cargo grew by 6% to 20 mln t while transshipment of oil cargo fell by 19% to 4.9 mln t.

    In the reporting period, there was a change in the cargo turnover structure of 2 percentage points in favour of the imported goods share – to 14% of total transshipment volume (3.5 mln t. Exported cargo flows accounted for 85% (21.3 mln t), coastal traffic operations – 1%.

    Dry bulk and loose cargo handling was flat, year-on-year. Grain transshipment by Tuapse and Taganrog facilities increased by 14% to 1.6 mln t. The facilities of Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg, Ust-Luga and Taganrog increase ore tan by 16% to 0.9 mln t. Coal transshipment by the companies of the division climbed by 2% to 5.7 mln t.

    Transshipment of mineral fertilizers plunged 8.7 times to 49,000 t due to a redistribution of cargo flows in favour of  specialized terminals in Russia and the Baltic countries. 

    Transshipment of general cargo fell by 6% due to reduction of metal scrap transshipment at Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg by 47.7% to 0.56 mln t and absence of fruit and vegetable imports via the port of Tuapse. Meanwhile, transshipment of ferrous metal climbed by 3% to 4 mln t, transshipment of non-ferrous metal at the port of Saint-Petersburg – by 5% to 1.2 mln t.

    The decrease of oil cargo transshipment should be attributed to the decline in transshipment operations at the terminals of Tuapse due to the temporary shutdown of the Tuapse Refinery for preventive maintenance in early 2016. Besides, the facilities of Tuapse and Taganrog feature less applications from the clients.

    Universal Cargo Logistics Holding (UCL Holding) is an international transportation group consolidating a number of Russian shipping, stevedoring, shipbuilding, railway and logistic companies. The group's business is divided into three divisions: UCL Rail, UCL Port and VBTH (shipping division).

    UCL Port consolidates JSC Sea Port St. Petersburg, CJSC Container Terminal Saint Petersburg, Universal Handling Terminal LLC based in North-West of Russia, the southern ports of Taganrog and Tuapse.
