Maersk Launches Container Depot in Novorossiysk

  • Maersk has started operating its own container depot in Novorossiysk. The facility was acquired by Maersk Property Holding from Terminal A in July this year.

    The depot located 10 km from the port covers a territory of 3 ha and has two rail branches 570 m long in total. The facility has capacity to store 1,500 containers TEU, the expected annual turnover is 25,000 containers.

    The depot includes fertilizers, liquid cargoes as well as general and palletized cargo handling facilities and deploys two reach stackers and two forklifts.

    Zsolt Katona, Head of Maersk Eastern Europe, commented: ‘Depots are “logistic shopping malls,” providing clients with a unique value proposition and complex logistics solutions such as container preparation, container stuffing from conventional rail wagons, trucking, storage facilities and others. Russia is one of the largest global exporters of bulk commodities, whilst only a fraction of it is being exported in containers – est. 6% of total export volumes in 2020 moved in containers (heavily lagging European/mature regions). To enable the fast-growing export market, depots are a key component for customers’ supply chain to convert bulk cargo into containers and export further to overseas regions’.
