Primorsky group of companies "Transit-DV" has taken a step forward in the development of transit freight
In the port of Slavyanka, Primorsky Territory, the Tranzit-DV group of companies tested an off-road transshipment complex. The Xin Yang Pu container ship of the China Shipping Line shipping corporation took part in the tests, the press service of the Transit-DV Group of Companies reports. During the testing of the complex, the containers were unloaded and loaded using the Chernomorets floating crane. The cargo unloaded from the vessel was delivered to the shore for further shipment to China.
Thus, the Transit-DV group has created a technological opportunity for organizing transit freight from North China through the ports of the Khasansky district to final consignees in the APR, the USA and Europe. As the President of Transit-DV Igor Polchenko noted, “the potential volume of freight traffic from the north-east of China amounts to tens of millions of tons of cargo per year.”
Currently, goods produced in the landlocked Yanbian Korea Autonomous Prefecture are exported through Chinese ports. To the nearest port of Dalian, the cargo has to be transported by land almost 1,5 thousand km, which significantly increases the cost of cargo transportation. At the same time, the path from the city of Hunchun to Slavyanka is about 200 km, to Zarubino - even less. The cities are connected by rail and road, checkpoints operate on the border.
Using the technology of offshore handling complexes will allow to deliver cargoes on board container ships calling at the ports of Khasansky district for bunkering.
In addition, on the tanker “Fairy Bridge” (deadweight 47 thousand tons), acquired by the Transit-DV Group of companies in April 2014, the national flag of the Russian Federation was raised. Previously, the tanker was called Laptev Sea and operated under the “convenient” flag of Liberia.
A "convenient" flag is the flag of the country in which the vessel is registered, although the shipowner is a citizen of another country. A state that provides a "convenient" flag receives income in the form of registration fees and other services. From the point of view of the shipowner, the registration of the vessel under the "convenient" flag allows reducing tax payments and port charges in most ports.
As the President of the Group of Companies "Transit-DV" Igor Aleksandrovich Polchenko stressed, the return of acquired ships under the Russian flag is the principal position of the holding. "We believe that business should behave responsibly in front of the state and the society," he stressed.
At present, the entire fleet belonging to the Transit-DV Group of companies operates only under the flag of the Russian Federation.
