Throughput Of Tuapse Sea Commercial Port Totaled 13 Million Tonnes In 2018

Monday, 11 February 2019 | 20:00

Tuapse Sea Commercial Port (TSCP Group, part of UCL Holding) handled 13.04 million tonnes of cargo in 2018, down 8% versus the result of 2017 mostly due to reduction of oil products export and coal transshipment.

In the reporting period, transshipment oil products fell by 15.4% to 5.4 million tonnes. Transshipment of dry cargo totaled 7.6 million tonnes, which is similar to the result of 2017.

The decrease should be primarily attributed to reduction of cargoes delivered to the port by railway due to more intense passenger traffic on the North Caucasus Railway in summer period, emergency situation caused by the flood in the Tuapse District in October and repair of a tunnel on the Belorechensk-Tuapse rail line in November-December 2018.

The above mentioned factors had the highest impact on the annual transshipment of coal which totaled 2.62 million tonnes (-14.7%, year-on-year). External factors also affected the volume of grain transshipment which totaled 1.97 million tonnes (-8.5%).

Meanwhile, transshipment of ferrous metal achieved a record high level of 2.94 million tonnes (+18%). The upward trend is attributed to successful implementation of an investment project on expansion of the port's capacity in the segment of ferrous metal — one of the key points of the long-term programme on the development of TCSP JSC.

Handling of fruits and vegetables totaled 80,000 tonnes, which represents a double growth as compared to 2017 figures.
The volume of exports, which forms the bulk of TSCP throughput, fell by 8.7%, year-on-year, to 12.83 million tonnes. Exports account for 98.4% of the total throughput, imports – for 0.6%, short-sea traffic – 1%.

In 2018, TCSP handled 610 commercial ships (334 – dry cargo carriers, 276 – oil tankers) and 111,000 railcars.
