Ruscon integrates terminal operations in Novorossiysk

RUSCON is integrating its terminal operations close to the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk in order to increase the efficiency of the operation.

RUSCON’s Novorossiysk and Yug terminals have been co-operating and using shared software since 2014 but this move will ensure that total throughput will increase and a greater range of cargo can be handled.

“The Yug Terminal is already undergoing an upgrade with the construction of a new warehouse and logistics complex,” explained Dmitriy Kutateladze, director of liner and business development, RUSCON. “The full integration with our other terminal in Novorossiysk will allow us to increase our throughput of aggregates as well as improve the efficiency of the warehouse and logistics operation.”

RUSCON acquired 51% of Yug Terminal in 2008 and moved to full ownership in 2011. The two terminals are located close to each other near the port.

RUSCON has recently installed an automated system for loading mineral fertilizers at its Novorossiysk terminal. The bulk cargoes are delivered by trains arriving from all over Russia and then loaded into sea containers or packaged in big-bags before being taken to the port for export.

RUSCON also handled almost 180,000 containers through the port of Novorossiyk in 2015.
