New LIEBHERR Crane launchedULCT adds a new warehouse to expand range of cargo handling services.

Ust-Luga Container Terminal (ULCT), part of Global Ports Investments PLC (LSE:GLPR), launches a new covered 1,500 sq. m warehouse. The warehouse was built as part of ULCT’s investment programme in upgrading its empty container yard and allows the terminal to substantially expand the range of additional cargo handling services.

ULCT can now offer its customers the repacking capability of cargo from railcars and trucks to containers and vice versa, as well as the accumulation and storage of cargo shipments in the port premises to be shipped by sea, rail or truck.

The warehouse’s four docks are 4.5 m high and 3 m wide and are designed for these cargo repacking operations. A mobile ramp and a gate, which is 5m high and 4m wide, are used to handle trucks. Warehouse operations are performed by six forklifts with a capacity of 1.5 to 4 tons.

ULCT’s location at a deep water sea port with direct access to the Rossiya federal highway (М10) and main line tracks of the Russian Railways also offers its customers a convenient route to deliver containers to Central Russia. The terminal’s well-developed railway infrastructure includes 4.7 km of owned rail tracks that can handle two container trains at a time and make regular shipments bound to Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Kaluga and other important cities.
