In January-March 2015, EVRAZ Nakhodka Commercial Sea Port (EVRAZ NCSP) handled 2.5 mln t of cargo (+25%, year-on-year), the company's statistics says.

According to Vycheslav Sarayev, Managing Director of EVRAZ NCSP, improvement of the port's efficiency was driven by a number of measures undertaken throughout the past year.

“In particular, we have established our own logistic center and commenced operation in conjunction with RZhD-Logistics which has let us expand the port's capacity and speed up handling of wagons and loading of vessels,” he said.

In March, the company's throughput climbed by 48%, year-on-year, to 979,000 t.
