In January-December 2019, companies led by T.A.Management (Transportation Assets Management LLC) handled about 37.0 million tonnes of cargo, which is similar to the result of 2018.
In the reporting period, transshipment of oil cargo grew by 11% to 6.1 million tonnes. The general growth was mainly driven by Tuapse Sea Commercial Port and Taganrog Sea Commercial Port. Handling of dry cargo slightly decreased, by 2%, to 30.9 million tonnes with the reduction of ferrous metal transshipment via the terminals of Saint-Petersburg and Tuapse as well as coal transshipment via Ust-Luga terminal. That should be attributed to the market changes and scheduled repair of production facilities undertaken by ship owners.
Export/import ratio remained at the level of 2018 - 85%/14% with the share of short-sea traffic also remaining the same (1%).
Containerized cargo transshipment grew by 4.6%, year-on-year, to 792,000 TEUs. Container Terminal Saint-Petersburg run by T.A.Management has retained its leadership among Russian operators. In 2019, the company handled 758,610 TEUs having demonstrated a 5.1-pct growth versus the result of 2018.
Transshipment of dry bulk and loose cargo by all companies climbed by 3% to 12.6 million tonnes. In particular, Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg raised ore handling by 43% to 470,000 tonnes and transshipment of mineral fertilizers – 2.2 times to 237,000 tonnes while Tuapse Sea Commercial Port increased coal handling by 38.2% to 3.6 million tonnes.
The segment of general cargo saw a decrease of 16.2% to 8.3 million tonnes due to the reduction of metal exports amid the changes in the global market.
