For the first nine months of 2022, shipping group FESCO’s container terminal in Novosibirsk increased the handling of containerized cargo by more than 13% compared to the same period last year, to 86,000 TEUs. The growth compared to the first nine months of 2020 is 27%, according to FESCO’s press release.
The main drivers of this increase in transshipment volumes were the reorientation of export flows from the Russian northwest to the Far East and the development of domestic container traffic on the routes Moscow – Novosibirsk and Novosibirsk – region of Irkutsk/Krasnoyarsk Territory/Trans-Baikal Territory. The growth of imports to West Siberian cities via the Far East in the beginning and second half of 2022 also had an impact.
In addition, in the first nine months of this year, the FESCO terminal in Novosibirsk handled more than 50 trailers (compared to 18 in 2021), received 389 container trains from all directions (compared to 328 trains in the same period last year) and provided delivery services and cleaning of more than 11,500 railcars carrying non-containerized cargo.
Due to the increase in volumes of container transshipments and in order to reduce processing time, FESCO Terminal in Novosibirsk also purchased and put into operation new loading and unloading equipment – a container loader.
The FESCO Container Terminal in Novosibirsk, located near the Novosibirsk-Vostochny railway station, is the main link in the chain of intermodal and domestic container freight flows of the Group through the regions of Western Siberia. The terminal is one of the largest regional centers for the transshipment of containerized freight by rail and by road, which will allow FESCO to be the main provider of terminal services in the Novosibirsk region for all categories of cargo owners. .
