NCC Group and its terminals became part of Global Ports.

On 27 December 2013 Global Ports completed the acquisition of 100% of the share capital of NCC Group in a transaction which was announced on 2 September 2013. NCC Group, First Container Terminal, Ust-Luga Container Terminal and Logistika-Terminal became part of Global Ports. A combination of the leading container terminals and professional teams as part of one container operator will enable us to offer our customers new winning solutions and make another step to promote the development of the Russian container market and its integration into the international transport system.

The enlarged Global Ports will operate nine container terminals[1], with a total marine container handling capacity of approximately 4 million TEUs (as of 30 June 2013), located in the Baltic Sea and Far East Basins which are key gateways for Russian container cargo. The enlarged Group is now the largest container terminal operator in Eastern Europe and one of the top-20 container operators globally[2].

The transaction provides potential for greater operational efficiency through improved terminal network management. The combination of NCC Group and Global Ports will enable shipping line customers to benefit from network savings through improved call rationalisation, better berth utilisation and enhanced productivity.

Global Ports has elaborated a detailed plan for the integration of NCC Group based on applying best practices and leveraging the international expertise and experience of both businesses. The integration of NCC Group into Global Ports operations will be smooth and will enable the combined business to offer added value to the Group’s customers. For more details please visit:
