ULCT GOES LIVE

26.01.2012

 

Ust-Luga Container Terminal (ULCT), a part of NCC group, has started operating. On December, 29, the terminal handled its first containership, Emotion of Unifeeder container line with the capacity of 1440 TEU.
The first containers handled at ULCT contain table ware and stoneware tile. Forwarding agent of this cargo is AVELANA LOGISTICS.
“Putting into operation of a new container terminal in the port of Ust-Luga also sets a development agenda for Russian transport industry for many years to come. Ahead of us is the implementation of three development stages which should result in ULCT becoming the largest and the most modern container terminal in Russia and the Baltic Sea region”, noted Alyona Ashurkova, NCC President.
“We are confident that the new service will be successful as the terminal offers a sound alternative to the St. Petersburg city terminals. Its geographical location offers the possibility to reduce the impact of the harsh winter on operation, and it will be able to easily accommodate cargo going to the St. Petersburg, Moscow and Kaluga areas through well established infrastructure. It is the new gateway into Russia and at Unifeeder we are proud to add it as a fixed part of our already extensive terminal network in the area”, says Unifeeder’s CEO Jesper Kristensen.
The new service offers fixed weekly calls to ULCT.
