Friday, 20 April 2012 | 14:30
Handling of exports / imports at LLC Universal Transshipment Complex (UTC) in the first quarter of 2012 increased by two times compared to January-March 2011, to 700,000 tons, the company said.
Coal exports through the terminal grew threefold to 521,000 tons, handling of pig iron increased by 20% to 173,000 tons. In the reporting period the company was not handling inbound goods.
The three-month traffic growth is attributed to the increase of the port’s railway infrastructure capacity after commissioning of the second phase of near-dock railyard Luzhskaya, as well as favorable weather conditions during the 2011-2012 winter season, the report says.
LLC Universal Transshipment Complex (member of UCL Port – a stevedoring division of UCL Holding), is a stevedore company operating the Ust-Luga based Multipurpose Cargo Terminal. The company specializes in the reception, storage and shipment of imported / exported general and bulk cargoes. In 2011, cargo throughput at UTC was 2.4 million tons.
