Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company (VSC, part of Global Ports Group, located in the deep-water Port of Vostochny, Primorsky Kray, Russia) has received ten Kalmar terminal tractors and ten Seacom semitrailers, the Group said in a statement.
The equipment was moved from the Group’s Northwest terminals to enhance VSC’s operational capacities amid container market surge in the Russian Far East. The vehicles will be used to handle containerised cargo at berths, yards, and railway front.
The equipment was delivered to VSC in two railway shipments. Logistics operator Ruscon, part of Delo Group supported the transportation, providing forwarding services and developing special schemes for securing out-of-gauge cargo on the platforms for its safe transportation.
Previously, since the beginning of 2022, five more Kalmar terminal tractors, five Seacom semitrailers, as well as a Raniero forklift have been redeployed to VSC terminal as part of the project aimed at enhancing VSC capacity.
Additionally, Global Ports plans to transfer three RTG cranes and eight Kalmar straddle carriers from the Northwest to VSC, thus expanding the terminal equipment fleet by 20% in 2023.
