    In 2017, throughput of Tuapse Sea Commercial Port JSC (TSCP, a company of UCL Holding) slightly exceeded the result of 2016 and totaled 14.2 mln t (in 2016 — 14.1 mln t). Transshipment of dry bulk cargo grew by 10% to 7.8 mt.

    According to the company’s press release, transshipment of loose cargo grew by 0.5 mln t (+9.9%). In particular, grain handing increased by 15.9%, coal — by 5%. When it comes to grain shipments, the upward trend of the recent 4 years continued in 2017 — the company handled 2.2 mln t of grain (+15.9%). In 2017, for the first time in the history of the dedicated grain terminal launched in 2010, grain shipments surpassed the 2 mln t mark. Steady growth of grain transshipment was driven by active demand continuing in export grain markets, high yield (with the delivery of new crop in August and September 2017 grain shipments surged by 115% and 82% accordingly), as well as a package of repair and preventive measures aimed to ensure efficient and smooth operation of the grain terminal.

    Coal shipments climbed by 5% to 3.1 mln t.

    Transshipment of general cargo grew by 11%. Shipments of ferrous metal increased by 10.5% to 2.5 mln t (in 2016 — 2.25 mln t). While exports of slabs were flat, year-on-year, at 2.03 mln t, shipments of steel coils surged 9-fold to 0.3 mln t with exports of rolled steel having grown more than 1.5 times. The company expanded the range of ferrous metal with reinforcing steel and galvanized steel sheets. Steady growth of ferrous metal turnover from year to year is the result of successful cooperation with NLMK Group, the port’s strategic partner, focused on improving the efficiency of operational interaction. Besides, TSCP has been systematically implementing the programme of technical upgrading including modernization of berths and storage facilities, renovation of portal cranes and wheel-mounted equipment.

    In 2017, TSCP handled the entire amount of oil products supplied for transshipment – 6.4 mln t (-9%, year-on-year).

    Import cargo flow comprising fruit and vegetable cargo started recovery only in the fourth quarter of 2017 after the ban on supplies from Turkey was lifted. It totaled 36,000 t.

    The bulk of TSCP’s cargo turnover was represented by exports totaling 14.05 mln t (+0.2%) and accounting for 99.15%. Import cargo and coastal trade cargo accounted for 0.25% and 0.6% accordingly.

    In 2017, TSCP handled 706 cargo ships, including 342 dry bulk carriers and 364 oil carriers, and 112,589 rail cars.

    Tuapse Sea Commercial Port JSC (TSCP) is the major terminal operator at the port of Tuapse, one of Russia’s largest ports.
