A large investment for Russia’s gateway port, St. Petersburg container terminal has been announced. The investment aims to increase the port’s container handling capacity by twenty percent. The Russian operating company (Global Ports) report that the $120 million investment will also increase the port’s Ro-Ro and automobile services at the terminal, which has seen a large consumer demand for the import and export of vehicles. The money will also go towards improving the rail networks linking the container port at the far East of the country, Port of Vostochny.
Global Ports handles thirty percent of Russian port container volumes and twenty-three percent of fuel exports from the country.
Mercator can handle all kinds of shipment of cargo to and from Russia, including Ro-Ro services, reefer containers, and the transit of perishable or dangerous goods.
