The port of Nakhodka has a record volume of cargo turnover for the last 25 years

A record turnover for the entire post-perestroika period was set in the Nakhodka Sea Trade Port in September, the press service of the seaside government reported.

For the first month of autumn, the port handled over 914 thousand tons of cargo. The growth rates reached almost 27 percent. For comparison, in September 2013 the cargo turnover was about 722 thousand tons.

According to EVRAZ Nakhodka Sea Commercial Port, the shipment of coal to customers' ships in September increased by more than 68 percent and amounted to 600 thousand tons. Last year, the figure was 356 thousand tons.

Also in September of this year, port workers shipped for export more than 314 thousand tons of slabs, billets, wire rod and other products of metallurgical plants of EVRAZ.

And 22 September was set the record of daily discharge - 293 gondola with coal.

Over the past three quarters of 2014, the port’s total cargo turnover amounted to more than 6,8 million tons. For the same period last year, this figure was 5,5 million tons. Over the past two years, and especially in the 2014 year, EVRAZ NCSP has demonstrated a steady increase in cargo handling volumes.

Experts point out that this has become possible thanks to a set of measures aimed at the development of the port. Investment projects are being implemented to lay out additional railway and crane railways, storage areas are increasing, and unloading fronts are being expanded.

Another important component of the high achievements of EVRAZ at the Nakhodka Commercial Sea Port is the successful cooperation with Russian Railways under an agreement on integrated transport logistics services.

The increase in the capacity of the seaside ports and the modernization of the transport corridors "Primorye-1" and "Primorye-2" are today one of the priority directions of development of the Primorsky Territory.
